Apple Orchard

This week's CAS challenge is to use bling on your project. I decided to have a little fun with my Everyday Button Bits set. Instead of buttons, I punched out textured cardstock for the treetops, then added some red rhinestones to create a little apple orchard. I stamped the grass, then sponged a bit of sky to finish the scene.

Wanna play along with us? C'mon...who doesn't love a little bling? Check out the CAS challenge thread for all the details.

Stamps: Everyday Button Bits (PTI)
Paper: Kraft, Bashful Blue, Old Olive textured, PTI white, SU dp
Ink: Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery
Accessories: ribbon (SU), rhinestones (Kaisercraft), sponge, corner rounder punch, circle punches
