Apple of my Eye

Now you can't get much more simple than this. I printed the apple with sentiment from the Cutting Cafe direct onto a card base, then printed the apple again onto DCWV sparkly cardstock from the pocket full of posies collection and cut it out. Some pop dots to lift it up, a bit of ribbon and a bit of doodling, hey presto, finished, and I really like the effect as well. I am not very good at 'white space' cards, but always really admire them when I see them in stores, or when blog browsing, so this one is a bit of a departure for me, as I resisted the urge to add anything else, apart from a strip of very narrow ribbon, which in hindsight was a mistake, as it upsets the balance of the card with the apple centred perfectly. Hey ho, we all make mistakes, and it still works well enough for me not to tear it up.
