An Apple a Day... PPA10

This week at Pals Paper Arts we are hosting a Theme Challenge: Gratitude and Thanks. I hope you'll play along - there are so many things to be thankful for!

I used the Mojo Monday sketch 106 for my layout. It's sassed up with several Designer Series prints: A subtle kraft medallion from Bella Bleu, bitty polka dots from Write Stuff Specialty, and a bolder brown dot from Chocolate Chip Patterns.

My center panel is a trimmed down tag from the Big Shot Two Tags BIGZ Die. I have so many ideas for using these great tags during the holiday season, but it was such a simple addition to this everyday card as well.

I combined a few stamp sets for some 'wow'. The sweet sentiment is from Full of Life. It's accented with the swirl from Season of Joy - LOVE this swirl! But my favorite element is the little apple I created using the Pumpkin Patch set. Clever, huh? I just stamped the circle 'body' in Ruby Red, added a Chocolate Chip stem, then grabbed a little leaf from Season of Friendship. I'm over the moon that I can make apples AND pumpkins with this set - diversity is the spice of life after all! ;)
