Apple Annie

The month is half through and I've been struggling to make "wood".
Yep, wood.
Another incredible challenge at Make it Crafty's Make it Colourful.
Always two choices. Pick one or both.
The easy version is to practise coloring flowers and/or trees.
The Hard Challenge...Wood
I do love a challenge though and the inspiration team have outdone themselves on this one.
So, without further ramble, here's my project
I've used several images from the Country Cottage Collection

The scene has been colored in copics
I found a burlap covered frame from home basics. I've used this as my base for a hanging picture.
Using a wood grain embossing folding to create texture to the maroon card stock,
distressed and Ranger DI to highlight the grain for the frame.
Upholstery brads at the comers
The tag sentiment is a sticker. I've distressed and inked tag then tied it up with a checkered ribbon.
Burlap flowers from paper studio are colored with copics to match the images
A vial of flower soft cause who doesn't love a nice potpourri laying around ;)
handkerchief folded burlap ribbon in the corner and a few other extras, We are good to go.
I hope you enjoyed the country trip.  I'm ready for the hammock...
Here's some close ups of the embellie
