You're the Apple of My Eye

Hello Blog Friends ~
I created this card for my sweet little granddaughter, Desi...because she IS the “Apple of my Eye”! I like to send her surprise packages with a hand made card, it’s fun! And, I miss her terribly :-( My DD, her DH and Desi live in Florida, and we don’t get to visit nearly enough, so I like to do little things to make her smile!

So, I am entering this card into 2 challenges: 

Addicted to CAS - Code Word is ‘One Layer Card’ 
Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge - 'Clean and Simple'

I stamped the apple and masked it off, then created a stencil using my banner die with masking tape and colored it in with Hero Arts Soft Pool ink. 






I hope everyone is having a great day...Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by ~
Barb


Supplies:
Stamps: Papertrey Ink - Fruit Fusion Apple
Ink: Hero Arts - Soft Pool; Versafine - Onyx Black
Paper: Papertrey Ink - Select White
Dies: Lifestyle Crafts - Banners and Arrows

This really is so deserving of the shoutout from ATCM, Barb! Congratulations! I'm sure your GD was delighted with it! I think it's brilliant how you masked and made your banner sediment AROUND the gorgeous apple!! Hugs, Darnell
