Harvest, Gratitude, and Apples

My favorite season, Autumn, continues.  Even though the weather is turning colder, I still love this time of year.  The end of the garden but now all the yummy  apples, pumpkins and squash.  And I put off making jam until now (I freeze the berries after picking them in the summer) so I have rows of jars filled with gorgeous shades of reds and purples.
Living in Washington, we have so many varieties of apples, all yummy and fresh - my inspiration for this card.
The image and sentiment are GKD.  Card stock is Kraft from MME Funday Everyday Fun 6 X 6, GKD Red Hot and GKD Jelly Bean.

This is the sketch I used at Tuesday Morning Sketches and decided to keep the card as close to the sketch as possible so I put a few "stitches" in the corners with hemp twine.

Thanks for looking and for taking the time to comment.
