Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 42

Happy Sunday everyone!  Wow...I feel like I have been completely MIA lately!  And I actually pretty much have been.  The past two weeks all of my posts have been scheduled, and they were scheduled about 3 weeks ago.  I was gone for our fun "Hocker Girls Week" the week before last, and this past week I have just been busy with some other projects.  I haven't been able to visit my favorite blogs, and didn't even really see any posts from CHA...so I feel a little out of the loop!  I will catch up though...I always do!

Well, after a needed week off....this Sunday gets back on schedule with Curtain Call Color Challenge 42 courtesy of Stacey's Stamping Stage blog!  Here are the colors for the week!
 Along with using these fabulous colors, I also used Clean & Simple: 102 for it.  Love this fun sketch that they created this week....as always! :)
"Apple of my Eye" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: Glitz Designs
Stamps: Renaissance by Design (A is for Apple, Roots & Wings add-on)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: moss green, chestnut, topaz) 
Jewels: Doodlebug Designs
Buttons: Basic Grey
Twine: Darice Inc. 
Corner Rounder: EK Success

Instructions:  Fold brown dotted paper in half to make card base, and round the bottom corners.  Round the bottom corners of a vanilla cardstock block, and punch three circles to the top of it.  Stamp the sentiment to the middle of the cardstock block, below the punched circles. Stamp the apples to a separate cardstock strip, and adhere it to the front so the apples will show through the punched circles.  Adhere the punched block to the front of the card using dimensional adhesive.  Tie twine through 3 buttons, and accent the circles with them.  Finish by adding three jewels below the sentiment. 

Be sure to check out what the other ladies came up with, including our fabulous August guest designer!  And I sure hope that you will play along! ♥♥♥
