And here's my interpretation of the sketch:
This reminds me of that old saying "an apple a day keeps the doctor away". I hope that's true because I've developed one of those annoying spring colds and I'm hoping it's a quick one! This is an easy card that would be great for a lot of different occasions, but especially good for an end-of-the-year thank you note to those favorite teachers out there! I used LS81, Small Apple, stencil and Glossy Red Embossing Paste on white cardstock. With the stencil still in place, I sprinkled some Ivy Garden, FX11, on the leaf and stem, and Kimono Red, FX15, on the apple. I used a soft brush to GENTLY swipe the powder over the entire image. Let it dry completely, deckle the edges, then mount on coordinating papers using the sketch challenge as your guide. A quick and easy design, but very eye-catching.
Now hop (it is almost Easter after all) on over to the DREAM it UP! blog for another great idea, then on to the design team blogs for even more ideas. Have a wonderful Easter.
