|Close-Up (Diamond Glaze)|
I plan to enter this card into the following challenges:

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!
