For this challenge, I wanted to focus mostly on the leaves and the apples but adding my own element to it as well.
My husband and I were married Thanksgiving weekend of 2006 and our color scheme and decorations focused on leaves, pumpkins, straw, raffia, apples and baskets. I wish I had my Cricut then....So I also drew inspiration from our special day for my project. It is a shaped card using Doodlecharms cartridge.
