A Basket Of Apples

I've had this set called Vintage Picnic by Papertrey Ink for a while but this is the first time I've inked it up. So many stamps, so little time ;-) So, when I saw that my friend Tammy was hosting the sketch challenge at Paper Craft Planet I knew it was time to break it out.

I stamped the image on Gina K Pure Luxury Ivory card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, colored it with Copic markers, cut/embossed it with a circle Nestabilities die, and sponged a little Distress Ink in Tea Stain around the edges. My patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Mr. Campy collection and my card stock is Always Artichoke and More Mustard. The off white ribbon has a twill-like texture and the dark green is also twill. Buttons are all from PTI's Vintage Buttons collection and are all tied on with linen thread from SU!

I'm totally CASEing Debbie Olson's style, which I admire so much, for this card.

I'm so glad you dropped in today!
