Bobbing For Apples...


To view the image up-close, please click on the photo.

Margaret Moody has come up with another fabulous sketch for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge. I got out my square punch and punched out four apples from this darling Stampin' Up designer paper. For my background, I thought I'd make my own designer paper with the matching apple stamp. Using a marker, I colored in the little seeds on the punched apples for a little contrast. I thought the green apple could speak for itself, so I left the rest of the card clean and simple.

Love your card...and the sentiment, Regina! This would go great with apple wrapping paper my husband just brought home for me. Great job with the sketch!
