Hambo Stamps Apple Eaten

I'm playing along in the Hambo Hoedown again this week using their fun Apple Eaten image times four!  
You might be wondering why four?  Well...  that's what "The Bacon Bits" are challenging us with - using four of something on our cards.  It could be embellishments, papers, images, etc., as long as there are four.

The image for this weeks challenge if you played along last is called Candles and if you didn't play along you can buy it here.

I know I always say this but... my card was really fun to make - I was going to color the apples red then decided to do something unexpected and use green, my favorite color.  I colored the apples with Copic markers YG01, YG21, YG23, E44, E42, E40, T3,T5.  The papers used are Copic X Press It, Via Vellum Leaf Green & Basic Black, the patterned paper was printed on Mohawk Bright White Color Copy 110 lb cover stock and is from Digital Delights by Louby Loo's Spring Has Sprung digital paper pack.  I also used a Papertrey Ink scalloped edge die, black grossgrain ribbon and a couple of stamps from the Lil Inker's set Rainbow & Cloud Sentiments.

Hey, did you hear?!!!
