An Apple a Day

This is my entry for this week's Jitterbuggin' challenge. The rules are to follow the sketch; use red, green and yellow; add something black; include an apple; and don't forget to use your Cricut.

This a 5"x5" card. I used a dark green glittery cardstock. I then used a pale yellow and embossed it with an embossing folder from the Preserves companion set, it was cut at 4 3/4"x4 3/4." The red square is cut at 3 11/16"x 3 11/16" and is made using a shimmery red cardstock. I used a pale yellow cardstock for the next square, which is cut at 3 1/2"x3 1/2." I did some doodling on the square with a black pen. The red circle is cut at 3 1/4" from George and Basic Shapes. I cut the other circle at 3" from George as well and then did some more doodling on it. The apple is cut at 2 1/2" from Home Accents. The apple blossoms are from 50 States and cut at 2." Once the card was assembled I used some black Stickles for the seeds in the apple and some black flat-backed pearls around the circle.
