Another Sweet Challenge!


Good evening everyone! I hope everyone is doing well tonight! Thank goodness the weekend is almost here! I have had a long week. I love teaching 2nd graders but they can sure wear a person out!

For my card tonight I used another one of MJ's great Monday Lunchtime Sketch challenges! I chose to use some more old olive on this card. I am sorry if you are getting sick of seeing it! Haha. I just can't help myself! I also decided to use the apple image from the cute Tart & Tangy set. I REALLY wanted to use the apple paper from the Summer Picnic dsp and the apple stamp matches it perfectly. I decided to mount my stamped apples on some real red scallops and staggered them so that they would fit. I was only going to use 2 but I decided 3 looked better. I then had to figure out what to do about the side rectangle. I needed a sentiment so I used the sweet stamp from the Sweet Shapes set. I then punched it out with some oval punches and hung the sentiment on a brad. I like how this card turned out although it took me quite a while to get it that way. That's kind of how I am when I make cards though, picky. Anyway, here is MJ's sketch. Thanks so much MJ!
Have a great night!
