Apple of My Eye... You're Just the Sweetest

Here's fun, bright card for you today.....

I saw this on Erica Cerwin's Pink Buckarroo blog a while ago and knew we had to make this card! (which we did last month at the All-Occasion Card Class).

We start our card with a Pumpkin Pie card base, then added a layer of Whisper White card stock.
On the Whisper White layer, we stamped (using the Timeless Textures Stamp Set) the Basic Black Grid marks and the two different "dot" stamps in Pumpkin Pie ink.

Next, we added a piece of Everyday Chic (Basic Black) Designer Series Paper and a strip of the Brights Collection (Pumpkin Pie) Designer Series Paper Stack over our stamped Whisper White layer.
Everyday Chic Designer Series Paper  138445  $11.00
Brights Collection Designer Series Paper Stack  138434  $22.00
Finally, we stamped our "orange" from the Apple of My Eye Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie ink and die-cut it with our Circles Collection Framelits.  We layered the solid image "apple" stamp (from this same set) over top to blur the lines of the orange a bit and make the sentiment stand out a bit more.   Then, we stamped "You're just the Sweetest" in Basic Black Archival Ink. 
We also stamped our leaf in Cucumber Crush ink and then fussy-cut it out with our Paper Snips. For the final finishing touch, we added a Linen Thread bow to our orange.

I hope you enjoyed this card!
Again, thanks so much to Erica Cerwin for her inspiration on this card.
