Apples Did This??

My card today is for this week's Hanna Stamps challenge over on the Hanna Stamps member forum of SCS. The theme this week is "Make Mine Autumn", we were to create a card using leaves, apples or something fallish.

Well I just received my new Riley and Sophie G stamps that were release by Hanna Stamps last week. I really wanted to use one of them and had to figure out a way to make them work with this challenge. This Diet Sophie G stamp normally has a little cupcake in the thought bubble .. so I covered that with tape before inking it up and then removed the tape before I stamped it onto my card. I then stamped the tiny apple from the "Fall Hanna set" into the thought bubble. I also decided to put the basket of apples from the same set next to the moose. It now fits the theme :)!

I wanted to add a sentiment to my card so after a little thought decided that "Apples did this?" would work, this is printed out from my computer. I am thinking Sophie G has been eating way too many apples ... I know apples are good for us but I guess if you eat too much of anything it isn't so good ... right!

Recipe:
Stamps: Diet Sophie G - Hanna Stamps
Paper: White; More Mustard & Riding Hood Red - SU; DP - Unknown
Other: Black Ink; Circle & Rectangle Nestabilities; Paper Piercing Mat & Tool; Riding Hood Red Grosgrain Ribbon; Foam Tape; Copics
