Colorful Sunflowers

Hi everyone and thanks so much for visiting. Hope your week is off to a good start. I made today's card using an old (but new to me) stamp by PSX.

 It's been stamped onto xpress it blending card using Memento tuxedo ink and I used my copic markers for coloring, following this week's challenge at Allsorts (Autumn Colors). The little dots were done using another really old stamp from SU. Sentiment is from a newer clear set by Penny Black. Papers are all from my stash, I think by My Mind's Eye and Basic Grey. Green card stock is by SU. I finished off the card by tying a bow using jute twine and applied wink of stella to the flower centers.

Before I let you go I wanted to share this huge apple we found at the orchard this weekend. It wasn't our first time there, but first time we saw this apple tree (and they only had one of these trees). In my left hand I am holding a regular (larger) sized Jonathan apple and a really small one, the one in my right hand is called a "Wolf River" apple. It's the size of one of those "pie" pumpkins.
 

Apparently this apple originates from Wisconsin. So if you're from that area, then this is probably nothing new to you, but I surely never expected to see an apple this huge!

Have a great day!!

Those apples certainly are huuuuuuge Ellie !

A beautiful Autumnal card with nice clean lines and the twine all adds to the Autumn feel. It's lovely to see you are Allsorts again this week and well done on making our Top 5 last week.

Gorgeous card, love that border stamp. I'm from Wisconsin, and although I think we grow some pretty large apples around here, that one is the largest I've ever seen.
