An apple on a handmade “get well” card just might speed the recovery for the recipient!  My inspiration began with this week’s Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge (PPA146), Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla and Riding Hood Red.  However, please be assured that if you play along, you can always substitute similar colors!   Don’t miss the color inspired card samples from the rest of the PPA Design Team HERE.

CrumbVanillaRidingHoodSTAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • I used Early Espresso as my neutral.  It really made the challenge colors pop!
  • A single silver brad defines the corner.
