  7. Sensational card. Love those deep, rich, fall colors! So lovely.

  8. Darling card and a great choice of papers!

  9. Aw, Shirley, your card reminds me of an old General Store - with everything out in baskets - nothing says "fall" better than a basketful of plump juicy apples right out of the orchard!! Yours sure look good enough to eat and I LOVE the old wooden yardstick paper you used for the BG - looks like the free yardsticks they used to give out to advertise.

    Your coloring is wonderful and I love the little border and decorative pieces along the edge of your image - awesome card!!!

  10. This is such a beauty. I like the ruler paper and the coloring of the apples and bucket is perfect. TFS AJ-

  11. Great coloring on that basket -- it looks very rustic!

  12. Like the rustic looking background to complement the apples wonderfully colored.
