Simon Says - Summer Fruits!

The challenge over at Simon Says Stamp this week is SUMMER FRUITS or SUMMER FRUIT COLORS! This is my first time coloring this apple basket and I really had fun with it! I am really happy with how it turned out. I embossed the card with "Swiss Dots" and then I colored with my lyra's and OMS and added some glitter to the handle and the apples as well. Just a touch adds a lot! This is also my first time using my (very first set!) nestabilities and I am IN LOVE! More to add to my ever growing stamping addiction! I sponged around the image with CTMH "Crystal Blue" ink. Thank you to my friend, Christine, for letting me stamp this image!

Gorgeous card Karen :-) I love the pail of apples and the red checked paper looks just perfect with it ,,, very 'country' :-)

Love the nestie shape too :-) I don't have many,,, just the basic square/circle ones but I do love these nice shaped ones :-)

Thanks for joining the Simon Says Stamp Challenge :-)
