1,2,3 Apples

It's time for my inspiration card for Digital Delights. 
Visit DD's blog to see more creations by the Design Team.

Another Whitewashed card, paper pieced like last time...told you I was hooked!
After paper piecing this card, I ran it through my vagabond with an embossing folder by
The Paper Studio.  It's backwards, just to add a bit of whimsy and interest.

Each apple has a highlight. I used Wink of Stella Glitter Pen that I picked up from Simon Says Stamp...very subtle sparkle...great tool to have.
The paper is from Graphic 45's French Country. I sewed the card with heavy duty thread on my Singer.
The Apple and Sentiment are by Digital Delights. Three apples in a row made me think of counting...

Missing You Sentiment set - Click Image to Close
One, Two, Three...counting until you return.
The twine is by CTMH. I recently tried my hand at selling their products,
 but it kinda cramped my style...
I like to use EVERYTHING!
The banner was swiped with some CTMH ink.
