Happy Harvest

Well, it is time for another amazing color challenge at CR84FN.  This week we have a color combo that works well for fall or Christmas.  I chose to be inspired by the fall theme and yummy caramel apple.   I just love the Vintage Picnic set from PTI.   Make sure you look closely at the right...there is a link for a cute sentiment set that you can't find anywhere else on the site, and of course I used the matching die.  ;)



Here I am looking at this realizing that I didn't add the adorable little cloth that hangs outside of the basket.  Oh well!  I hate it when I do that.  I think it looks naked.


Mona's hubby Scott is a huge Apple fan and used this amazing quote from Steve Jobs for this weeks color challenge.  I have to say that I have only used my mom's Mac laptop and when she passed away this summer she wanted my son to have it.  He is loving having his own laptop and seems to be able to use it very easily.


Supplies:
Cradstock: PTI/ Rustic Cream, White, and Kraft
Patterned Paper: My Minds Eye
Ink: Memento/Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa
Dies: Spellbinders/ Eyelet Circles, MFT Crochet Border die, Lil Inker Banner die and stamp
Copics
Ribbon

I wouldn't have noticed the little cloth was missing till you mentioned it because it looks so darn cute even without it. But I'll bet it would be extra adorable with it. Nevertheless, it's a fabulous fall card. Really love the papers and the border punch, as well as the image and your stitching.
