Apple Thank You Card


Close-Up (Diamond Glaze)
I received this free digital image from Designed2Delight Digital Stamps.  Each month they hold a challenge to create a card using a free digi and everyone that enters received another free digi and so on for the month!  This is my first month entering and I am really excited because they have great digital stamps! 

I plan to enter this card into the following challenges: the Apple a Day Image Frutti, Buttons or Bling and a Digi a Digi Image

The apples were a blast to color with my Prismacolor Pencils.  I added some Diamond Glaze to make them nice and shiny!  I cut out the image into a circle and mounted it on a scalloped circle cut from Poppy Red Cardstock from Paper Trey Ink with my nestabilities.   I just received my sampler of PTI Cardstock last week and I am loving it!  Such pretty colors and very sturdy.  I used the Dark Chocolate Cardstock to create a square card base.

I cut my patterned paper from My Mind's Eye into a smaller square and matted it with more Poppy Red Cardstock but before adhering it - I used a small circle punch to cut the corners.  I have seen this done on cards before and I believe there may actually be a punch for this but I haven't been able to find it-so I improvised!  I added some brads and green stitching around the square.  I just love the look of stitching-but my sewing machine is broken and I have to admit I am not terribly experienced at sewing anyway.  I end up using a lot of the Bazzill Stitch Templates!  I added a bit of thick jute, a sentiment from Hero Arts and three little buttons!
