Bushels of Thanks

My sister lives on the other side of the state where apples are the biggest industry.  In fact, her husband is the largest fruit packers in the state.  I wanted to thank her for her hospitality recently so I chose apples as a theme for my card.

The checks BG paper, basket of apples and the cut apple are all Diane's Daydream Design pre-colored digital images.  Burlap and twine are from the Kraft Outlet.
I don't use tags very often but I challenged myself for this card.  Cut my own tag then punched out a circle and punched a hole in that before attaching it to the tag.  The tag was slipped in behind the basket of apples before I secured everything with glue and Score Tape.
