Queen Kat Designs Royal Wednesday Blog Hop

This sentiment from the QKD Apple Days stamp set is perfect for today because yesterday we celebrated THE FIRST DAY OF FALL here where I live.

The QKD Design Team's challenge for today was to use an inspiration photo containing the colors orange, white and beige. The team has made some fantastic projects for you! So if you started with me, please click your mouse on QKD blog to start at the very beginning of the blog hop. I wouldn't want you to miss a thing! If you came from awesome Anessa's blog, then you're on the right track. And next up is Nina's blog. Both of them have posted amazing cards.
I was able to post this card for a sketch challenge after the Apple Days stamp set was officially revealed at the beginning of the month. I worked so hard coloring this tree with my Copics and Prismacolor pens that I wanted to take a second look. I blended green, yellow and two shades of red on the apples until I got them just the right shade to work for this orange challenge, wanting them to still look like apples not oranges! This time I used chalk for the sky. I took the guard off my corner rounder to make the scalloped edge. I cut out the butterfly that was on the Sassafras Life is Beautiful patterned paper and placed it on my card as a reminder that spring will return.
Here's the blog hop road map, should you need help navigating cyberspace! Be sure to welcome all of the wonderful, talented new designers! See you next week!
