For fall

Apples always remind me of fall - when we lived in Omaha there were so many apples available in September and October!  This got darker than I had anticipated - trying to use the apples as a guide for the colors.  I used red, dark brown and dark gold from the color challenge; sentiment from ODB; red rain drops from the Freedom set available at Classy cards; and a bit of ribbon from my stash.  The DVine Swirl embossed piece (Cuttlebug) is sponged for added depth; some edges are distressed.
Inspiration (colors):

Yum!! Makes me want a nice fresh picked apple! : ) Very pretty, and a wonderful sentiment for any occasion. Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.

Very pretty card Dorothy! I love fall too, and apples are abundance here in Michigan in the fall..nothing better then to bite into a nice, crisp just picked apple! Thank you for joining us at Classy Cards 'n Such for our "An Apple A Day" challenge!

Dorothy, I don't think your card is too dark at all. Fall is the season where summer colors begin to fade, and everything starts to take on the rich earth tone colors. It is perfect! Thank you for your card entry at Classy Cards 'n Such weekly challenge. Hope to see more of your lovely ideas in months to come!
