Happy Harvest Apple Card by Shellye McDaniel

Happy Harvest Apple Card by Shellye McDaniel for Newton's Nook Designs

Harvest Apple on canvas by Shellye!

This fun card by Shellye will get you in the mood for Fall!  Shellye created the adorable apple focal point by stamping the apple from our Falling into Autumn onto canvas and colored it with distress markers. What a cool effect! She also used our "Happy Harvest" sentiment from the new  Falling into Autumn stamp set! This card makes me want to go check out an apple orchard this weekend!!
