Apple Costume for Tuesday Throwdown

     And a good Tuesday morning to all of you!  We have a new challenge and new theme over at Tuesday Throwdown this week -- "Dress Up."  We want you to use images of people or things in costumes, whether that relates to Halloween or not.  It might be a Victorian costume, or a Shakespearean costume, or something from a Christmas pageant.

     Our sponsor this week is Chi Chi Memories and they are new to me but I simply adore the images they supplied for the DT to use.  So, brand new image from a brand new company and this one is called "Apple Costume."

     Isn't he adorable?  I had so much fun making this really CAS card.  I think as I practice this style more and more, it's becoming a favorite of mine.  It works really well for cute cards, and let's face it, I do many more cute cards than elegant and fancy ones.  I'm just naturally drawn to cute images.  While I can appreciate elegant when others do it, I'm happiest with cute and humorous when it comes to my own cards.  :-D

     He's colored with ProMarkers, then die cut with a die from Spellbinders.  After inking the edges, I adhered it to the center of an A2 card front.  I added the twine and the bow and it was finished.  Delightfully primitive and childlike -- a perfect 'non-spooky' card for a youngster at Halloween.

  1. He is an adorable little guy. Great sentiment too! Lovely card!

  2. I had to LOL when I saw the sentiment. The only time my kids got detention in school was when they both worked on the school newspaper and in an argument, one said 'so bite me' to the other and received a 'bite me' in return. Not too smart in front of the teacher.
    Great card design and coloring.
    Hugs, Debi
