Elisabeth Bell's Apples for Mommy

This is such a beautiful image by Elisabeth Bell. My good friend sent this to me for Christmas last year. This is the second card I've made with it and know there will be many more. The name of the stamp is Tommy's Apples for Mommy. This type of card is my favorite to make. I like sweet and cute and don't forget the embellishments!

I've colored the image with Copics. The paper is from Stampin' Up, I used my Cuttlebug on the oval around around Tommy and the diecut in blue behind him which is by Sizzix. The doily is from my stash. The flowers are a combination of Wild Orchid Crafts and my local lace/ribbon store with some dark green punched leaves. The corner die cut is by Quik Cutz and the button on it is by Pebbles. The sentiments are by Lili of the Valley and the Apple on top of the sentiments is a button by Dress It Up (I cut off the back so it would sit flat on the card). The large yellow cut jewels are from Michael's.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful week!
