Can you believe another month has rolled around since the last PTI blog hop? Last month, CASEing the design team, was a lot of fun. This month the challenge was to use buttons.
One of my favorite fruits is the apple and one of my favorite sets so far this year is Through the Trees. This might be obvious and its probably already been done, but I thought a mixture of scarlet jewel and pure poppy buttons would make a nice apple crop on the tree from the stamp set.
I used DMC 906 to tie the knots for the apple 'leaves' and stamped the stem in chocolate with the leaves of the stamped tree in new leaf and the edges rolled in avocado. Layered it on pure poppy and new leaf with that speckled white paper as the base. Added a bit of red gingham ribbon around the corners and stamped a sentiment from Every Day Button Bits . . . it is a get well card because as you know, an apple a day . . .
Thanks for looking and happy hopping!
