TMS#127


Again, good morning!  I'm back with my second post for the day.  (For Creative Card Crew post, click here.) It's time for another challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches; our sketch this week is courtesy of Kathleen.  It's a great sketch; I did have to turn my card into a square to make my image work....  Our sponsor this week is Sparkle Creations and she graciously gave me "Backpack Oliver" to work with...thank you, Sparkle!

I wanted to do something a bit different so after stamping the image on Confetti White, I decided to just color the apple.  I found some fun papers in my stash that were perfect for the school theme...the images simply make me happy!  I got out my Corner Chomper and rounded some of the corners...I think it adds a nice touch.  The card is embellished simply with Baker's Twine and brads.  I might just have to save this card for the end of the school year since I have a son in the 5th grade....

I can't wait to head on over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog to see what the rest of the DT has done with this fun sketch!  I would love to see your take on it too....

Thanks for stopping by today!

What a great idea to color just the apple. Love the DPs you chose and the sentiment strung on the twine.

So cute Angela. Love the red apple, great way to color the image, it really pops and has a great look. Fun papers, too. And I'm a fan of rounded corners, perfect touch!

I think you should save it for Davis's teacher. Perfect card for end of year. Love the great papers you used and also love it all white except for the apple. Great design and card.

So cute! I love that you've left most of the image uncolored. It works really well with the dp you used. ~Hugs, Cheryl
