"An Apple A Day"

I had such a fun time coloring this image....she is such a cute little country girl! The image is a C.C.  digi (instant gratification when you purchase a digi stamp!) I loved coloring those apples! I cut my flowers out with the C.C. Five Point Flower Die to add a different look to them, I ran them through the crimper and then distressed them with Tim Holtz Walnut Distress Ink Pad I added a black brad to the center and curled the tips of the flowers. One of my favorite leafs for the flowers on my card is the C.C. Leafy Branch Die, I think they look so soft and airy! I did a bit of rummaging and found this little apple button just for a bit of fun. I popped up the image and the flowers with 3-D foam squares! I added three red brads to finish off my fun little card!  I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: God Gave Me You
God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
And for when I think I lost my way
there are no words left here to say, it's true
God gave me you
