Thank You

Hiya! Today's card was totally inspired by my Apple Cinnamon Cheerios box! :) See, inspiration lurks around every corner... or in this case, on top of the fridge! hehe I used Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, and Evergreen Bough distress inks to create the background. I misted it with perfect pearls in a mini mister AND  splattered with that mixture too. I just unscrew the pump portion and flick it at the paper. I stamped the cute apple from the Faceless Fruit stamp set from PeachyKeenStamps. I colored it super quickly with my ink blending tool and distress inks in Festive Berries and Fired Brick. I used the same greens as the background for the leaf. OH I paper pieced the colored bits. :) 
Here you can see the shine of the perfect pearls a little better. I white heat embossed the sentiment from the  So Grateful For You set from MyCreativeTime

ALSO I wanted to say how excited I am to be staying on the PeachyKeenStamps design team! I look so forward to getting to know all the new dt members! :) Pop over HERE to meet the new team! 

Have a GREAT day!
