Sunday Cider

Had to get this post before the end of the challenge. My blog friend Lynn is a designer for {Pin}spirational Challenge and she inspired me to get on the Pinterest Inspired Card Challenges! Well truth be told she has inspired me more than once or twice! She was even kind enough to give me some Stampin' Up advice when I was waffling on demo or no demo...

She and I pin and re-pin each other pins...on Pinterest all the time. Who's pinning whom depends on who was on Pinterest first during the day!

If I spent HALF the time creating cards that I do PINNING cards....

Anyway - I love the photo this week for the Pinspirational Challenge thought I would give it a go and challenged myself to use a Stampin' Up image!

I may have to add something to this....just don't know what. It needs the aroma of cinnamon!

Cup - O - Cider
~Base Card - Stampin' Up Kraft card stock
~Layer of design paper
~Two layers of design paper using Stampin' Up Framelets (dark green and red) (the layer of green needs a little something to make it POP....)
~Stampin' Up Express Yourself stamped on Kraft cardstock highlighted with SU Stampin' Write markers
~Border of metallic card stock apples using Cricut on SU Very Vanilla with the edges roughed up a bit
