Apple of my eye.....

I have created this card with 2 challenges in mind. Over at Just Magnolia Rach has created a fabulous sketch and the challenge over at ROP is to use red, orange and brown. I have been looking for any papers that I had with these colors in it for about a week and all I had left was this little piece so I decided to make my own!!(For some reason the orange looks yellow but it really is orange!!) I wanted to use this Tilda and the basket of apples for the circle in the sketch, so when I found this apple stamp in my drawer it was perfect for making some paper! I just stamped it in brown, orange and red and ta-da my problem was solved!! haha Plus I really like the way it looks on Kraft paper!! (Can you tell I am really loving this stuff!! haha) I ran the other circle through the cuttlebug and sanded it down.

Paper: Bo Bunny
Inks: distress inks, twinkling h20's
Accessories: button and twine ~ stash
Sentiment: Part is from CTMH and other is from CHF (would give link but looks like set is gone!)

Anyways thanks so much for stopping by!! Hope the weather is better where you are today!! Looks better here ~ the sun is peeking through!! Thanks so much as well for all your lovely comments!! Love reading them all!!

PLUS DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE SUGAR BOWL ~ If 200 people join in there will be two fabulous Fall sets to be given out!!! We are at about 110 but you have until Wednesday night to join in!!!
