Apple Harvest

It seems forever since I was able to participate in a challenge. There have been so many great challenges lately and I have been missing all the fun. I finally was able to get a card done this weekend for a couple of challenges!
My card is 5" x 6 1/2 " white cardstock and is layered with a pretty Recollections pink patterned paper.
I was trying to include apples and a wheelbarrow into my project. I opened Cricut Freshly Picked cartridge for the first time and saw this apple frame. Well, immediately I decided to frame a wheelbarrow! Have you noticed the interesting frames on this cartridge...some would be great on scrapbook pages.
Cricut Cartridges:
Freshly Picked - Page 28 - Apple frame cut 4". Page 54 - Hat cut 1 3/4". For Apple Harvest, I used the Words feature on page 28 for the Apple and Words feature on page 59 for Harvest. Both were cut at 1 1/4".
Walk in my Garden - Page 107- Wheelbarrow cut at 1 1/4".
Cricut Essentials (preloaded on E2) - Page 45- Corner cut at 1.25"
A Child's Year - Page 49 - Apples cut 3/4"
Lots of inking! Hat and phrase are pop-dotted! Patterned papers are Recollections (24 in pack). I love all these colors. For the reds and kraft color, I use papers from my scrap stack. I used both the Expression and E2 on this card.

Bitten by the Bug2 - Walk in my Garden wheelbarrow. Of course, if you do not have this cartridge, you can use a similar cut from another cartridge.
Cooking with Cricut - Ch.# 53 - Apples and Honey
Link Up for Pink - Linking party - Pink as main color for Breast Cancer Awareness

Hope you enjoy my card!
