The Sugar Bowl Challenge #68

Good morning sugar fans and I hope you are all raring to go with our new challenge over at The Sugar Bowl. This fortnight's challenge is Kiki's sketch below....

....and of course the optional theme which is "autumn". As normal there is the fabby prize of 4 Sugar Nellie stamps but if we get over 100 entries then the prize will be 6 stamps...woo hoo!!

For my card I have used papers from Jillybean Soup - Apple Cheddar Soup collection...they are yummy!! The base layer is kraft card which I am loving at the minute and I have stitched each of the layers and also distressed each layer with my TH distressing tool. The stamp is called "Apple of my Eye" from Simply Sassy at Sugar Nellie which you can buy here from Funky Kits. I coloured this little Sassy with Distress Inks....I reckon this one took me about 4 hours in total to colour as I did it over a few days but I am well chuffed with this one. I added a couple of flowers that have been cut with my MFT flower trio die and then I added a button ans a little itsy silver apple charm!!
