Picking Apples, Sugarbowl challenge 18

I am trying to think forward to Fall that is just around the corner. This Sugar Nellie image makes me think of Fall because of the apples in her basket. Right after the start of school the kids in the classroom are always coming in after a weekend and bringing an apple for me because they have gone apple picking with their family and know I am always eating apples.

Because I love the Sugar Nellie images and I had fun playing in the Sugar Bowl last challenge I decided to play again. It is a sketch challenge 18, and you needed to use buttons. I NEVER use buttons though I have a lot of them. It took me so long to finish the card because I kept changing my mind on which looked best. I finally made my own by using clear buttons and putting DP behind them so they would match the card. I tried to use Fall colors and green is definitely not my color of choice most times but I thought she would look Fallish in green and I love this Basic Grey DP.

Stamps: Sugar Nellie
Paper: SU Close to Cocoa, River Rock, Papertrey White, and DP Basic Grey
Inks: Copics, SU Bashful Blue
Accessories: Cloudmaker, MS Punch, EK Success Corner Punch, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, CTMH Flowers, Clear Buttons, LSS Ribbon

I hope you like this card as much as I do. I have just ordered the new fall set of Home Grown Sugar Nellies and they are on their way here. I can't wait to ink them up they look wonderful in the pics.

Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your comments about my creations.

Have a great Day,
