Autumn Days

 Autumn is officially here!  I am happy for my wallet since we aren't running the air conditioner as much but will definitely miss my warm mornings with bright sun rays shining in my window.  Sigh.  I do like Falls gorgeous colors and some trees in my area already showing the red foliage.  I would love to venture up to Maine and see the trees in their beauty during the Fall.  It's on my bucket list.  One day!  :-)
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.

This is absolutely adorable, Amy! Love the mix of papers and love what you did with that image. The muted coloring really does make the apples stand out that much more, and I adore the button apples around her feet. So, so sweet!
I've never been apple picking, but it does sound like fun. I sure love all the baked treats to be made from apples, that's for sure!

Your card looks so pretty. She looks adorable with those big eyes. I have had Maine on my Bucket list for a long time now. And in a week and a half I will be fulfilling that dream. My hubby and I are headed out there for a cruise and Maine in one of the stops. I can't wait..
