Delicious Day - Apple

This is a card I made for the Moxie Fab World: Olympics of Stamping challenge. I've been meaning to make a card with the pairing of the A Muse apple and this sentiment for the longest time. Picture it with me - you are in the produce department of your local grocery looking at the fruit and there it is - the biggest, juiciest, shiny Red Delicious Apple sitting there calling your name.
I stamped the red apple first and then used my stamp positioner to stamp all the green apples around it. This process is goes much quicker than you might think. After stamping, Koh-i-Noor pencils brought the red apple to life!! TIP: After applying the red ink to your stamp, wipe the ink from the stem/leaf area before stamping - makes it much easier to color with your pencils afterward since you won't be coloring over so much red.
The stamp positioner was invaluable again when it came time to stamp the sentiment. I really, really like this card!! I think it turned out even better than I had imagined! WHOO HOO - yeah me!! I hope you have a Delicious Day too!!
