I made this card for Sentimental Sundays challenge this week which is Autumn and features a Saturated Canary image. I wanted the apples to be the focal point so I colored her dress and hair in muted tones. I added red buttons to resemble apples on the ground. I used a SRM Sticker from the Fall sheet for my sentiment.
Anyone go apple picking? I am planning a trip with daughter. She went last year but we had so much rain the grounds were soaking wet and the apples were mushy. The few she did pick were not the big red fruit I envisioned but we peeled them and made an apple crisp which was quite tasty. This year, I would love to make spiced apples. Moving on before my mind fixates on this too much.
The pattern papers are MME which were in my scrap bin. I used a variety from different lines. One is Valentine's oriented as you can clearly see. I liked it though and went for it. I added a sparkle green trim for added interest as after thought. Just isn't a card if it does not have some bling or shine.
