Through Thick & Thin: 

For my card today I picked the image from the digital stamps that has the apple pie and colored it with my Stampin' Blends.  I used Smoky Slate, Crumb Cake, Cinnamon Cider, Ivory, Poppy Parade, and the Color Lifter to color the image.  It was super easy to color.  I just printed it off onto some Basic White Cardstock and sat down and colored away.  I had the best time coloring the image.  The sentiment on my card also came from the Digital Stamps and I just simply cut it out with one of the Tailored Made Tags Dies.

I simply added it to the card front with a couple Stampin' Dimensionals.  To add a little more fun to the card and to go along with this weeks card sketch I added a little gingham designer series paper from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper Pack and the Pale Papaya gingham was a perfect compliment to the apple pie image and sentiment.  So, to add a little more of the Pale Papaya (which is my favorite new In Color for 2021-2023) color to the card I simply matted the colored image and the designer series paper with a little mat made from Pale Papaya Cardstock.

Finishing Touches:
