Hugs and have an apple (-: for STV's Inspiration Challenge

Hi there,
Did I say how glad I am to have my computer back LOL (-:

This card is for Brenda's Inspiration Challenge at STV
She has had the most wonderful pics to inspire us!
This week I went with the colors Red, Green and White from the inspiration - and thought of this apple image and the white shelves just reminded me of this background


Used several of GKD's stamp sets - the background leaves are from Theresa Momber's "Hope Grows", the apples are from Asela Hopkins' " Fruitful Harvest" and the background is Melanie's "Inspiration Mosaic". Cardstock is GKD's All Spruced Up, Red Rocket and White (120 lb). Red requires a lot of blending and the 120 lb is absolutely perfect! (ps - also highly recommend at the Copic Certification too!) Colored with R11, 22, 27, 39, E33, Y11, YG11 and 67, T0, T2. Ink is Memento's Bamboo and Black.

I started to lightly yellow the inside of the apple but I love a crisp apple and to me it looked more crisp using the T copics instead of yellow...hmmmm, maybe next time I will give the inside a little more color...

our apples here in Virginia were a little small this year but daggone they are delicious!!

have a blessed day
we are enjoying our Homecoming today - and you know us Baptists - going to be some goooood eatin'

hugs,
also entering this one over at Marks Finest Paper Challenge #17

Hope your celebration was a lot of fun and you were good an full. I love the crisp, white apple. The Hugs tiles are nice, at least they look like tiles so me, you didn't mention it, so guessing you didn't do that on purpose :)
