A is for Apple

As someone very new to blogging I thought it would be a lot of fun to take part in some challenges.

As my very first challenge I'd like to enter this card in the Alphabet Challenge Blog.

The apple topper is made from the centre of my previous card which was iris folded.  Don't we just love to use everything!

I coloured the apple with three colours of Distress ink then dabbed it with a Versamark inkpad before heat embossing three times with clear embossing powder to give it a good shine.

The background is kraft card which was put through my Cuttlebug with a woodgrained pattern embossing folder.  the circle behind the apple was diecut and embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder then wiped over with Shabby Shutters Distress ink

The sentiment is from a Printworks sentiments set and both snippets of ribbon from my stash,  I attached the green dotty ribbon with a staple.
