Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Orchard


Welcome back to the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!  This week, the Crew is back back with our August challenge entitled Orchard.  The LEAD for this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in a future challenge.

This picture made me think of enjoying a nice, firm, crunchy, juicy apple.  Love when the new crop comes out as mushy apples are a huge pet peeve of mine!  I pulled my colours from the picture and used some wood grain paper to bring in the trees.  Verve's Teacher's Count was my set of choice since it has these adorable apples, matching Apples die set and this wonderful sentiment.  Best part is you don't have to be a teacher to live out this great motto!
