An Apple a Day... keeps the Doctor away!

Hi folks! Here's one of the cards I made with Joanna Sheen's new Country Kitchen stamp sets. I used the small apple stamp from the Crab Apple Collection. I stamped it using saddle brown Satzon ink straight onto some tan coloured papers and then added more colour with watercolor paints. The papers are by Bo Bunny.
I covered the card base with the polka dot paper. I cut the large semi-circle using my We R Memory Keepers magnetic circle cutter. I scrunched it up, flattened it out and rubbed some crimson copper Brilliance ink and again with a light touch of Graphite Black. I cut and embossed the red squares with my Nestabilities and adhered them using dimensional glue
gel and topped with the apples. I used my Quickutz 'Dragonfly' alphabet plate to cut through Funky Foam. I finished off by adding a couple of decorative corners. The seventh apple is on the inside of the card.
Ciao fo now!
