one of a kind

Hello! It is starting to get a little cooler and I am getting excited about fall. One of the big fall signs in my area is apple picking and sending the kids back to school. My card today is simple but makes me think of both those things.

I started this one by die cutting the window out of kraft paper and stamping and coloring the apple with copics. I attached the window frame to a top folding A2 white card and then fussy cut the apple out and added it to the front with some foam tape. After I stuck the apple on, I decided I didn't like the color the window frame so I used my copics to color it a darker shade of brown. Then I stamped the speech bubble and the sentiment. I added some white nuvo drops to the cheeks of my apple and some red ones in the speech bubble to add some color.

Stamps: SSS - happy days
Dies: MFT - window
Misc: copics; Nuvo - white and red berry 

I am sharing this card in the following challenges:
Addicted to CAS - apples
CASology - education
SSS Wednesday - stamp it

Ok, I am off to take my son to the dentist :) To everyone in the south/southeast US, please stay safe and we are all praying for you!
