Robin's Fetish Basket of Apples

Happy Saturday my crafty friends!

My card today is the sample card for our "Something Round" challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps sponsored by Robin's Fetish.  I used "Basket of Apples" by Robin's Fetish and had lots of fun coloring it with Copic markers R59, R46, R35, E99, E29, E25, E53, YG67, YG63, YG03, B63, B60, B0000.

I also used Doodle Pantry Rounded Wishes digital stamp set for my "something round".  I was actually trying to make a regular A2 sized card since this challenge is for Operation Write Home and that is the size they prefer but it got away from me...  To have the circle I made with my Spellbinders dies fit the Rounded Wishes I was using and fit around my Basket of Apples I had to re think my plan.  

I also used one of my favorite Cheery Lynn Designs die sets for the shape of the card, it's called French Flair.  For a little added something I went and looked up apple blossoms on the internet to see what they looked like and thought I could add a few of those using an old EK Success flower punch.  The red hearts you see are from a Die-namics heart border die and I placed them over the dots that separate "Have a delightful day" in the sentiment.

I hope you'll join in our "Something Round" challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps, the challenge is open until September 30, 2011.  Robin's Fetish is our sponsor with a generous prize package of 6 digital images of the winners choice!
