Apples From Taylored Expressions

As a part of Splitcoaststampers (SCS) Taylored Expressions recently became a Member Company.   As an announcement of this membership, there was a thread that offered a card making challenge using Taylored Expression stamps.   Even more exciting, is that there are free digi stamps being offered here.

I used the apple basket digi to create this card.   I remembered that I had some apple DP {remember I am trying to use up the DP's that I have!}.  I paired it with some various colored card stock.  I used a die cut at the craft store to create the fence.  A cute Fiskars punch made the apple.   I sponged some ink on the yellow card stock.  I cut out an apple from the DP {that was fun!} to put on the computer generated sentiment.   Two eyelets, some more sponged ink and a recycled piece of raffia and we are complete!

I know, doesn't it make you want an apple right now?!  Would I appear too cheesy, in the fact that I ate an apple while creating this card?!  Talk about the power of suggestion!   LOL  

You still have time to join in on the challenge!   It closes on March 21st at 8PM CST.   The prizes will be announced on the thread listed above.

I hope that you like the card and thanks, for taking the time to peek in on it!

Tami this is so nice, I love the layout of the card and the way you have done the raffia, but I especially love how you have done the layering with the elements on the bottom of the card, makes it so lifelike.

Tami, this card is awesome! Yes, it does make me want an apple! In fact, when lunch time rolls around, I think I'll have one! ;)

Good luck; I hope you win! Speaking of which, have you checked my blog today???
