The first of the year the request for cards is usually thank you cards from the girls at DH work. I grabbed Apple Of My Eye for this thank you card. The apples are stamped onto Classic White card stock using Memento Tuxedo black ink. Colored with copic collections. A hint of orange coloring on the apples was a mistake that I think turned out rather nice don't you? After they were colored I simple detailed cut around the image. You don't have to do that if you don't want to as we have a Silhouette Cut file for Apple Of My Eye. Added dimensionals to the back to pop them up and then some sparkles to the leaves. The first of the year christmas challenge is new from old. Dust off the old things and make them new again which I have had a lot of fun with this week. One thing I dusted off were the Candi (large enamel like dots in the corner) that I really like as accents. So be on the look out for several creations with these. I have the bug "again" for them now that they are dusted off. hee hee Tied off a Color Made Easy Poppy Rancho ribbon bow and voila!
