Expect a Masterpiece!

I made this card for the sketch challenge over on Splitcoast this week as well as the Doubledog Dare Challenge I do with a group of friends (see my sidebar). Joanne (sleepyinseattle)was our hostess and her challenge was to use an apple on our card.

I clear embossed some apples on the black panel and cut out a red apple and attached it on the sentiment panel. The stamp set is from Papertrey Ink The panels are cut with Labels Eight Nestabilities. You can see all the DDC cards here.

Yes, a very Happy Birthday today...Julia!!!

Love your card with the dark glossy apples and the way you used that cool striped twill. Is that the script folder turned on it's side? It adds great texture!

I was fortunate yesterday to find a set of the small label nesties at a yard sale for $8! Came home, cranked out the bug and they were perfect for something I'm working on.

Enjoy your day!
