Hello everyone: CAS cards are still a bit out of my comfort zone, I never know if the ones I make are CAS enough for the challenges I participate in so, I kind of shy away from them but today, there is one over at CASology and the theme is CRUNCH, I immediately thought of sweet, red delicious apples and that is why I made this card. I took a cue from Jen, her blog is JENerally Speaking and she is one of the DT members and she explained to "Use your sentiment to ground an image....." and that is just what I did.

This image and sentiment are from an old and retired Flourishes stamp set called "Apple of my Eye", I stamped them onto a die cut panel of Ninah Solar White card stock with Stazon black ink and colored it with my Prismacolor pencils and paper stumps dipped in baby oil.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

I tried to keep the inside CAS too. Both the sentiment and the little mug are from this same set.

I'm entering this card onto the following challenges.

Cards und More Challenge #179 "Friendship"
Ike's World Challenges #83 "Anything Goes/optional twist "use a sentiment"
Through the Craft Room "Anything Goes"
Crafting from the Heart Challenge #148 "Anything Goes"

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
