Treehouse Thursday Challenge # 046

Beautiful bedding ,huh!? Well, this is the photo inspiration for this week's Treehouse Stamp Challenge. I used the colors for my design from this fun digit kit.
This is the first one I came up with. I had so much fun coloring and adding shades to the apples. Glossy Accent was added to the stems and shiny spots.
 I think this will make a great teacher's thank-you card! And of course, I couldn't stop just right there. I also love the butterfly image and decided to make a quick card. I had the butterflies printed on two colors of card stock. Then I distressed the yellow one with Tim Holtz's Spiced Marmalade and cut out the image.
Since the photo inspiration reminds me of  a bedroom window, I made this card with that in mind.
All the blings do look lovely on the dragonfly! I thought that I will "throw" in a dish picture( the fried rice WAS my lunch) that has similar color scheme....just in case you are hungry :)
Thank you for stopping by!
