Apple of my Eye

I wanted to make several cards this morning, but I only got around to making two. I just had to watch some episodes of Downton Abbey. This was the first one. I am participating in these challenges:

Freshly Made Sketches
Color Throwdown
Simon Says Stamps - Summer Food/Drink
Pile It On - Just because/thinking of you

I thought the colors in the Color Throwdown inspiration picture looked an awful lot like our Viva exclusive paper pack that we got at convention. I just had to throw some pink in there, and it was perfect. So I used Hollyhock as my card base. The apple was stamped in second generation Juniper. So the colors I chose (Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush, and Rich Razzleberry) are Juniper, Sunset, Hollyhock, and Smokey Plum.

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy, Hollyhock
B&Ts: Viva (convention exclusive)
Stamps: Mayberry WOTG
Ink: Smokey Plum, Juniper
Other: Sunset Baker's Twine
