Thanks By the Basketful

Someone recently gave me a box of apples (Washington, of course) so I made this card to express my appreciation.
I love images of baskets or barrels of apples.  This image and sentiment are by Gina K Designs.
Colored with Prisma pencils.  I made the plaid paper with my stamp by DRS Designs.
Card base is GKD Ivory.  The little piece of twine is Earthy Colors Help Cord from Kraft Outlet.  I love it because it is real soft and ties easily, unlike other twine I have that is stiff and hard to work with.
The sketch - Seems a Little Sketchy

Other Challenges:
Perfect Sentiment - twine
Great Impressions - Fall colors
House that Stamps Built - no squares
Penny's Paper Craft - twine
Bearly Mine  - Fall colors
Sister Act - anything


  1. Beautiful card - lovely shading! Thanks for playing with us at Seems a Little Sketchy and best of luck in the drawing!

  2. Very nice! Love what you did with the sketch. Thanks for sharing at Sister Act Card Challenge.

  3. So pretty - love the colors.

    Btw, on Die Cut Divas, you asked a question on where I got the magnetic boards. I posted a reply, but will copy it here. :)

    The magnet boards are home made. I bought boards (the art pieces) and covered them with magnetic sheets that you can buy at Michaels in a role for $9.99 (add 40% coupon and the price goes down). A role is about 12 by 24 inches.


  4. That plaid ribbon/banner/mat behind your apples really makes them pop. It's a very pretty card.
