Autumn Apples......


Good morning everyone....it is Saturday and we have made it to the weekend!  The temps are cooling a little here and you can almost feel Autumn in the air!  Our overnight lows are dipping down into the  60's and most of us are so glad!   My card for today is for Joan's Gardens at: joanscreations.blogspot.com  It is Challenge #12 and it calls for: Striped paper, pearls or brads, piercing and a stamped Fall Image...JustRite if you have them. 

My card doesn't show the piercing very well, but it is there...On the brown layer under the apples.  I'm sorry, sometimes my pictures leave a lot to be desired!  My image is from JustRite and I colored it with Ranger Distress inks.  I'm still learning this process, so please be kind.  the leaves were cut with Spellbinders dies and colored with Ranger Distress ink then I added some Metallic Rub On's.

This card is also being entered in a new challenge site I found:  Crafty Emma's   The Challenge is "Anything Goes". 

I hope you enjoy this!  Have a wonderful weekend and remember to take time to Breathe!

Supplies:
JustRite Stamps
Gina K Designs Card Stock
Ranger Distress Inks
Black Pearls from my stash
Striped paper from my stash
Spellbinders Dies
Martha Stewart Border Punch
Metallic Rub On's

Oh, look at this! How pretty! Very warm and rich and really puts me in the mood for Fall! I can smell those apples... Beautiful stamp, and your coloring is great! I'm really loving the leaves, too. Thinking I might need to get some of those leaf dies.
