Home is where the heart is

Hi everyone!

Here's a card for today's color challenge on SCS (always artichoke, riding hood red or real red, and basic gray).

The stamps are from another one of the NEW cling mount sets by Anna Wight at Whipper Snapper Designs. This one is called Give Thanks. Anna posted a card on her blog today too using this cute set. Be sure to stop by and check it out!

All images were stamped in Versafine Black Onyx, and then watercolored with Always Artichoke and Riding Hood Red.

The inside of the card has more apples stamped in the lower left and right corners.

....and check it out...I tied an actual bow!! Whoo-hoooo, I hardly ever do that because I'm so bow challenged! Seriously, wanna know how many tries it took me to get THIS bow??.....six! It's okay, you can go ahead and laugh at me. :)

RECIPE ~

Paper: Papertrey Select White, Riding Hood Red, Always Artichoke, Basic Gray
