Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Candy Apple!

The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

For my card I focused on the black and white polka dotted pattern and threw in some pops of green and red.  I used one of the scriptures in Verve's Scripture Medley 4 stamp set.  

Next, I stamped and die cut the apples using Verve's Teachers Count stamp set and coordinating Apples die set.  I used the stamps to color the apples, but colored the stems with copic markers.   To give the apples a more candy apple look, I stamped the solid image using versamark and clear embossed.  I finished my card with a few of Verve's Shine Bright Sequin Mix.  I am also playing along with this week's Mojo Monday Sketch.

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs 
for more inspiration!

I just had to share this precious picture of one of my fur babies.  All summer I was cleaning, painting, purging, putting in storage, and throwing out stuff to get our home ready to put on the market for sale.  I passed by my much neglected craftroom and saw one of my kitties snoozing away. I felt a wee bit jealous that he was getting to spend more time in my space than I was.  Anyway, I just had to snap his photo.  At least someone is enjoying my craft space!

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
