So Fresh with Papertake Weekly

Hello all!

Today I'm posting my last card as Paper take Weekly's Guest DT. I wanted to send a big thank you to Dawny and the rest of the team for inviting me to play along with them this month :) I had such a good time creating the cards and visiting all the entries!

This week's Challenge is a sketch Challenge

I turned the sketch upside down for my card.

For the base I cut black card stock to make a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 square card. I ten cut a white piece slightly smaller and masked it with another square. I stamped it (Hero Arts, Cling Dots) with Hero Arts Punch chalk ink then traced the edge with a black marker. Using another white square I stamped using Hero Arts Grass chalk ink. The little polka dots are from Oriental Trading, Fruit Salad. I used a 2 x2 square for my diamond. I inked all the edges with black before putting my pieces together. For the 3 circles element I just punched 3 small circles from black card stock.

To color the apple (Hero Arts, Simply the Best) I stamped it twice, once for the apple once for the leaf. I colored using worn lipstick, barn door, fired brick, shabby shutters, peeled paint, and forest moss. I stamped the apple a third time on my diamond to placement. I fussy cut out my colored pieces and adhered them with foam.  The sentiment is from the same set.

I added glossy accents to my apple and the big polka dots. I added stardust stickles to my leaf and small polka dots.

Thanks for coming to visit :) I hope you'll have a chance to play along with Papertake Weekly's sketch challenge!
