Pick a peck

     "Autumn Colors" is our theme this week at The Kraft Journal.  For my card I've chosen to use a couple of freebie digital images from Birdie Brown aka Torico.  I am so blessed to be able to work with Torico's amazing clear stamps for There She Goes and her digis are just as cute.
     I've used a base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock and layered it with panels of Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock and fall colored designer papers.  My image was colored with Copics and white gel pen highlights on the apples.  It's mounted on a Nestie die cut that I cut from both chipboard and Brown Kraft.  Two corner pieces of E-Flute Corrugated Kraft paper and some Natural Twill Tape were used to embellish and the sentiment was printed out and cut from more Brown Kraft.
  We'd love to have you come join in the challenge for your chance at a Top 3 Spot, Friday Feature spot, and a $15.00 monthly gift voucher from Kraft Outlet.
     From the comments Saturday it seems I once again managed to get a song stuck in many of your heads.  LOL  Sorry about that.  I'll cut you a break today and not use any song titles or lyrics.  :-)  (I didn't say anything about tongue twisters  hee hee)
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Couldn't figure out what you were talking about in the post... I'd read the sentiment and read it again and nothing. Scroll up..read post title...HAHAHAHA...dangit!

What a gorgeous bundle of apples..LOL..I'm refusing to give into that rhyme. I love the 11 layers that I counted too. :) So nice to start my morning on your blog. Even when you mess with my head like that! LOL ;)
Have a great week Hick,

Pick a peck of pickled peppers! LOL Love your card & all the fall colors (wish it was Fall here.....boohoo.....it's in the 100's....ugh). Love the kraft cs & corrugated paper. And a super cute image ta boot. Darling! And a freebie. Doesn't get much better than that. You polished up those apples real well with that white pen. Nicely done, GF!
Happy Huggies on this Fab Monday ~

Love those autumn colors, Tracy! The image is colored beautifully and I like the corrugated kraft paper and the natural twill ribbon.
And I'd like to choose the sentiment of your card (and transform it just a little bit) to tell you: «Happiness is to have a bloggie friend like you!» - thank you so much for your lovely comments on my blog!
Big hugs, Anja
