An Apple a Day

Today's card features a Happy Hopper stamp called 'An Apple a Day', which I thought would be perfect for some of the autumn themed challenges around around at the moment. I coloured the image using watercolour pencils to match the PinkPaislie 'Prairie Hill' papers. I distressed the edges of the papers, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The stamp sentiment is from the 'Fabulous' set by Hero Arts, the flowers were cut using my Tim Holtz 'Tattered Florals' die, and the brads are by BasicGrey.
