Nancy - Day 4

Hi everyone! I just know you are going to love this card by Nancy:



Her three dimensional tree is out of this world! I love, love, love the way she intricately paper pieced the leaves of the tree. The punched cirles not only provide the fall colors of the leaves, but also add to the shape of the tree. And finally, the apples have great texture and colors! The touch of purple/burgandy looks so nice with the yellow background!

Here is my take on Nancy's innovative card. Nancy's card was so incredible that I was inspired to make two cards:

That tree is one of my favorite cards of Nancy! Your fruit inspired cards turned out wonderful!

Hi Jill, I really love your cards today. There is always something so appealing about seeing an orderly design as your column of apples and diamond of pears...wonderful stamping and layering technique too!
I'm especially happy that you chose that particular card as inspiration (it's a favorite of mine too)...I still have it and it just may be heading your way.
