apple love

when i saw the new challenge on Inspired By i knew just what i wanted to do. used my paper smooches falling for you set and made a small card for hubby's "love mailbox". had hoped to make this in under 10 mins for another entry in the 10 min craft dash, but with the paper piecing it took a total of 12 mins. close but not close enough!
3.5 x 3.5 
fits in hubby's mailbox perfectly :)

i went with the apples and country feel

the apple is paper pieced

su cardstock, mme dilly dally dp
sewing, viva decor red pearl pen
foam tape, copic markers, 
hero arts red pearl heart
paper smooches falling for you stamps

I've got to say that this is amazing. Love the apple against the lot of patterns in the background, and the colors are so true to school time too! My computer crashed (thought I had lost all the design files for good!) so I haven't been able to comment on your other fun creations, but I scrolled down and they are so much fun. You've got a knack for the patterned paper!
