The card started out super clean and simple, but then I had a workplace (well, craftplace!) injury - caught my finger on the paper cutter - and bled all over one edge of the card. Rather than start again, I made a frame for the un-bled-on bit - I hope it's still clean and simple enough!

Your little bowl of apples is certain to make the recipient feel better! I guess it is true about an apple a day! So happy you joined us at The Paper Players this week! XXReplyDelete
Jo, I've often said that accident is the mother of creativity! Your panel looks as thought it was always intended to be like this. I love the way you've got variations of colour in the apples and I'm very impressed with the way you've used the strip from Swirly Frames as the table... an idea I might have to borrow. :-) Thanks for joining in with us at The Paper Players this week.ReplyDelete
I am thrilled to read that you were directly inspired by Jan's card this week Jo - and I'm so glad it caused you to seek out this little apple to make your card! I love your variagated apples and the happy accident that was your frame - it balances your CAS card perfectly. Thanks for playing along with my clean and simple challenge over at The Paper Players this week!ReplyDelete
Thanks Jan - I was going for Braeburn and Jazz apples with those colours - 2 NZ faves!ReplyDelete
And thanks Joanne and Claire for your lovely comments!ReplyDelete
Oh dear, I hope you have recovered from your injury! No worries on the card, it's SUPERB! Love those cute little apples! Thanks for playing with our apple challenge at the Paper Players this week!ReplyDelete
