This is my second post today so if you're here for the Raise the Bar card, just scroll down. It's friday so of course that means that I played with one of my images from Mo's Digital Pencil overnight!! Her challenges post on Thursdays and I always wait to see what the challenge is before I start. This week the challenge is "Fall Colors". 

Here's what I came up with:
Aren't those colors just gorgeous? That paper is from K&Company and I just love how it's orange and muted at the same time.
Here's an angle shot and a close up:

I'd buy apples from her.. what about you? My family used to go apple picking in the fall when I was a kid so for me, apples and fall go hand in hand!
So here's the recipe:
Image: Mo's Digital Pencil "Sadie with Apples"
Sentiment: Inkadinkado
BG stamps used: Stampabilities "Swirls and Curls" and "La London Script" on frame and tag. Script on DP was already on paper ; )

Ribbon: Michaels Store Brand
Paper: K&Company, Bazzill, XpedX
Ink: Memento Cocoa Brown, Tim Holtz Spiced Marmalade, Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.

Misc: Crop-A-Dile

Hair: R20, E33, E37
Vest: E31, E15
