RRC #45 - Feel Better

I'm so happy to introduce you to the latest Ribbon Reel Challenge for this fortnite.  I was so lucky to be able to chose the inspiration photo this time with a little help from my friend Renee Lynch - who is a  Pinterest junkie.  Check out this yummy photo full of color and texture - don't those apples look yummy?  All I've been hearing about on the news is the flu - seems like we've all had some version of the flu this winter so I thought I'd make a get well card.   An apple a day and all that right?

I colored up this yummy stamp from Flourishes with Copic Markers.  I wanted to makes sure to pick up some of the texture from the photo so I added a wood panel print across the bottom, some burlap ribbon, and burlap cord.  

So you don't have an apple stamp - you don't need one - you can be inspired by the colors in the photo, the textures, the glass bottle the basket.. doesn't matter.   If you need a  little more inspiration check out what the design team came up with - I'm sure you'll be amazed!  Just click on their names below to jump over to their blog.

OMGosh, Jeanne! This is wonderful. Such a touch of spring in the colors. Hmmmm, I have this stamp -- where did I store it? Your card gives me the urge to find it again and use it. :-D
