Basket of Apples digital stamp

I'm heading out to Westham Island Herb Farm in a few minutes to pick up some blueberries and more basil.  I'm making glazed blueberry pies again today ... have to take advantage of the local blueberry season!!  And I'm going to make more Sun-dried Tomato Pesto tomorrow so will need more basil.
But before heading out, I wanted to participate in today's SCS Color Challenge - kraft, any yellow, any red ... and the dessert is leaves.  Today I'm using a digital image that I got from Beccy's Place (http://beccysplace.blogspot.com/).  Beccy is an amazing artist who generously shares her artwork for free.  Check out her blogspot - it's amazing!!  And thanks Beccy for this adorable digital image that I used in my card below!  Hope you like.

"Basket of Apples"

I printed the digital image onto Whisper White cardstock and then colored it in with the Stampin' Write markers.  I used small make-up sponges to add some dark shadows to the basket and bow.  I carefully cut out the image ... it took a bit of time :)

I mounted all the pieces as shown in the picture above, popping up the basket with dimensionals to add depth.
