Crispy and sweet.....

Hello everyone, I'm here again with another card for the SHOPPING OUR STASH Challenge, this time, my teammates and I want to see APPLES or anything made with them, pies, tea, cider, etc. Here is my card and I hope it inspires you to come an play along with us.

This beautiful crate of apples is from a Power Poppy set called Farmers Market and it has other images just as delicious as this one.
I was very happy to use some of my stash of Lili of the Valley pattern paper that I've been hoarding since all of this collections have been retired or discontinued, sigh!!­čśĽ
I stamped the image onto a die cut panel of Strathmore mixed media paper with Versafine black ink and colored it with SU markers and Wink of Stella.
The sentiment is from the set.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment here is from the set and the little caramel apple from a retired Flourishes set.

I'm entering this card onto the following challenges.
