Apple Barrel *Heartfelt Creations* and *SOUS*

Today's card sketch at Stuck On U Sketches. Be sure to check out the 
DT's inspiration and join in our challenge!

I followed today's sketch at SOUS for this card. The papers are from Alpine Frost by SEI. The decorative border is EK Success.

All stamped images are from HCPC 3486 Classic Editions PreCut Set
I used Loew-Cornell pencils to color the apples.


OTHER: Alpine Frost by SEI. Kraft. Twine. Loew-Cornell pencils. Distress inks. EK Success border punch. Card Sketch by SOUS.

Cut a background pattern to fit a 4.5 x 6 inch card. Ink and mat with green cardstock. Cut a piece of Kraft for stamping. Stamp the trees with an assortment of green Distress Inks. Ink the edges and mat to brown cardstock. Stamp the barrel with brown ink and die cut. Stamp, color, and fussy the apples. Layer the barrel and apples on the Kraft. Punch a decorative border and paste. Wrap some twine across the card. Adhere the Kraft piece and finish with a twine bow. Adhere the card front to a 4.5 x 6 inch folded card base.

Very creative! Love the way you placed the basket in front of the trees - that's what I call thinking outside the basket:)
