Apple Of My Eye

Hi friends!
I hope you are having a wonderful day!

I'm happy to announce that there is a new challenge blog called The Four Seasons Challenge 
and I'm on the design team!
It is a monthly challenge that will be anything goes for the season that we are currently in. Each month there will be a photo for inspiration that you may use to help guide you as well.

Here is a look at the photo inspiration for this month:

Here is the card that I created based on the above inspirational photo:

Every fall we try to go apple picking as a family. When I saw the inspiration photo, I knew that I wanted to gravitate towards our Fall tradition of apple picking. My card was actually pretty simple to create. I used a digital stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil and colored in the image with my Copic markers. Once I had it colored in the way I wanted, I used a Cross Stitch Die to cut it out. I added some patterned paper to the top to fill in the empty space, tied a twine bow and popped it up onto my scalloped patterned paper piece with foam tape. I then popped up that piece onto my light kraft cardbase with more foam tape. I added a few little white doodles to her overalls and the apples to complete my card. I just love how this turned out and I think this image to just too cute!

Copic Markers Used:
**Skin: E50, E51, E21, R20**
**Hair: Y21, E31, E33**
**Overalls: B21, B34, B37**
**Boots: E42, E43, E44**
**Shirt: Y19, Y17**
**Plaid Shirt: E40. E43**
**Basket: E31, E33, E35, E37, E40, E41**

Beautiful card and colored beautifully! I love your card designed and it is fall in perfection! I used to take the kids apple picking years ago, but I buy them already picked, southwestern lower Michigan is known for all it's apples and cider mills. Very happy to have you on our team at Four Seasons!

Oh Stacey this is such a sweet image and you have showcased her beautifully! LOVE your overall design and your coloring is awesome!! What a wonderful tradition ... those memories will go on forever!! My sisters & I used to get together with my mother & a few of my aunts (my mother had 8 sisters) and we would spend the day making apple pies and apple dumplings. My mom & my aunts are all gone now but I have wonderful memories to look back on. Well done my friend ... so glad you are on our design team!!
