The Apple of my Eye.....

Hello dear friends: Well, September is finally here, this is a wonderful month for several reasons.....the weather is fabulous, fall is just a few weeks away and the Orchards will soon be ready for all of us to go pick apples. This card is celebrating this very occasion, I hope it gets you in the mood for hot apple cider and delicious apple pie.

Don't you just want to grab one and take a bite? This image is from a retired Flourishes set called "Apple of my eye" and it has the most beautiful apple images I've ever seen.
I stamped this one onto Canson water color paper with Stazon black ink and colored it with SU markers, the aqua painter and Prismacolor pencils for shadowing, specially around the apples.
The patter paper is from a sadly discontinued line from Lili of the Valley. 
The sentiment is from the set, the yellow flourish on the corner is from 

Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment is from a retired Flourishes set called "Berry Sweet", the apple from the "Apple of my Eye" set.
I would like to enter this card onto the following challenges.

Thank you Nonni, I'm now realizing that this card has very little black in it, I apologize for that.
