Playing with Serenade by Flowerdisco and Friends, Week 1

Good Morning! So, Flowerdisco got together 6 friends who'll be going through all the images from Serenade for the next eight weeks, and I am so excited to get to play along with this great group of ladies!
The image I was assigned was the 5th image, the apple. I originally had something totally different in mind for my card, but on Friday I received a package from a Christmas Ornament Crafting Club I'd joined a while back. Once I opened it up, I knew I had to make them immediately aling with my card to match!
For my card I cut the apple using my deep cut blade from chipboard. I then used the same paint that came in the kit to paint the apples and pears. The first coat was the gold matte, the second coat was the gold metallic. I also used a green paint pen then evergreen Creative Inspirations paint on the leaf. For the stem I used a brown Viva Decor pearl pen. The red base card stock is Recollections. The paper is from an old Paper Wishes pack I had, and the ribbon is from my stash. For the sentiment I cut a tag from the Winter Wonderland cartridge, and added a Dazzles sentiment sticker in gold. I really had fun with this project and love how it all came together!

So now let's see what Flowerdisco and her other Fabulous Friends did, shall we? Click on their names to visit their blogs if you'd like!

Oh my gosh, don't you just love their cards!? I hope you enjoyed seeing us playing with Serenade, and we'll be back next Wednesday for another round of fun! I hope you'll join us!

Thanks for stopping by!
