A bushel and a peck

I received my latest order of stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs last week and this stamp set was amongst them. I really enjoy colouring their images and I think this is going to become one of my favourites :-)

Elizabeth Whisson, Our Daily Bread Designs, Apples, ODBD, Copic

I am entering this card in:
1. Our Daily Bread Designs ODBDSLC180 - Circle or Square it (three or more of a circle or square, not layered) challenge.
2. Word Art Wednesday - Challenge #108 - Anything Goes!
3. Inkspirational - Challenge 44 - Anything Inkspirational Goes
4. Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog - Challenge 94 - Any Sentiment

I also practiced my marblised background technique again that I learnt in Marie Gamber's Background technique class over at Color Me Creative Classroom. You don't get to see too much of the marblised background in this one because I had to crop the image quite close - bit it is there!
