Apple Seeds

I can't believe the final week's challenge sponsored by Serendipity Stamps is here already. NUMBERS - that's this week's challenge over at Gingersnap Creations. I really had to think outside the box a bit on this one as I didn't have any Serendipity Stamps that just screamed "numbers". But then I thought of this stamp (one of my all time favorites by the way!) and I figured "counting" has to do with numbers, right?

The card came together pretty easily until I finished mounting the apple on the dimensionals and stepped back to view it and just knew it was missing something. I decided to add some seeds to the design so I began by hand drawing, coloring and cutting some out. The end result just didn't give me the effect I was after ... so, I raided the refrigerator and used three original God created ones!

Check out the other great number related creations by visiting Gingersnap Creations this week. Thanks for all the fun challenges Shar. It's been a blast!

Fantastic! It came together wonderfully, and those apple seeds are the perfect touch! And somehow I've managed to miss this stamp.. it's a must have!
