Apple Thank you

A thank you card with the main image from Flourishes and entered into their challenge which was use 3 pattern papers. I colored the image with copics and since the apples and flowers were warm colors, I entered it into the Copic Creation Challenge also. I actually used 2, the brown diecut with a nestie and the tag that has the sentiment on it was a wood grain pattern. I created a patterned paper with cuttlebug and then distressed it. bright. I also used the diamond pattern or checks...which is the challenge over at Totally Gorjuss Challenge.
The green cs is from SU, the pattern papers from DCWV recycled pack. Sentiment is from Gina K designs. All the papers were distressed using Tim Holtz inks...walnut and main image with linen. The ABC challenge was to make old-fashioned and that is what I used the distressing inks for....plus I liked how it toned down the green, which was very bright. I think it was the green galore!
This card will be put in a basket for a "keep in touch" theme at my oldest child's kindergarten class. It will be in an auction at the carnival. Hope people like what I am doing!
