And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Happy Johnny Appleseed Day

Johnny Appleseed and I have something in common...we share the same birthday!  Not only did Johnny Appleseed (John Chapman) plant apple seeds across the nation during the westward expansion, he carried the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as he walked, telling stories to young and old alike. So in honor of both of our birthdays, I've created an apple card for today.  
Creative Nugget:  Square layers of Vintage Cream and Bo Bunny DP were stitched to Early Espresso and mounted to a Vintage Cream card base...also a square.  The Decorative Corner Dies fit perfectly around the DP square and little squares of Vintage Cream completed the background for the apple basket image. The Apples image was colored with Copic Markers and cut with a SB Classic Square Nestie.  This panel was layered onto a SB Decorative Labels One Die cut from Early Espresso.  The little birthday sentiment is from another stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs, Peaches, and was cut with a square punch.  Pearls were colored and added to finish the card.

Many of the materials used to create this card 
are available at Our Daily Bread Designs.

This card will be entered in the following challenges:
Happy Johnny Appleseed Day!

Thanks so much for stopping by...hope your day is special and blessed!
