Hi everyone! Long time, no write!!! Life does get in the way of blogging at times, but I'm back in the groove just in time for the Dare To Get Dirty Challenges over at Splitcoast Stampers. If you don't belong to the Fan Club, you are missing out......there is an entire week CHOCK FULL of challenges, and mega prizes if you complete them all!!! Good thing for me that combining challenges is okay!!!
I really enjoyed making this card.....I broke out some new Memory Box cutting dies which haven't been used yet....they cut like a dream!! The "Orchard Tree Frame" was cut out of Stampin Up Chocolate Chip and the "Country Landscape" was cut out from a scrap of Memory Box designer paper, sponged with Garden Green, then the leaves, apples, trees, and houses were painted with Smooch pearlized paint. The quote stamp is from the Our Daily Bread designs "Apple Seeds" stamp single. For the background, I traced around the outside of the frame die and trimmed it down to fit, then sponged the clouds over a scalloped circle. Scotch Craft Glue was used to adhered the panels together, then Scotch Foam Tape was used to pop up the panel over Stampin Up Red Riding Hood cardstock. The only extra embellishment I used was "Pearl" Glimmer Mist....I love how it shows up well on darker cardstock! :)
