The Paper Players 415 - Design Team Card

Welcome to Joanne's Clean and Simple Theme week challenge. This week at The Paper Players, Joanne has chosen apples as her theme.

Apples. So many ideas around them: the temptation in the Garden of Eden, an apple for the teacher, an apple a day keeps the doctor away, even a computer brand! Even with all these ideas, I had to hunt the stamp stash to find an apple. Finally I thought of the tiny apple stamp that was part of Thoughtful Branches.

That got me to making this apple tree, with one apple off to the side for the patient, along with get well wishes. It's grounded on a little strip of DSP from the Neutrals DSP pack.

I'd love to see what you make of this theme. Don't forget that as it's Clean and Simple week that you also have to keep the design uncluttered with open space, minimal layers and minimal embellishments.
  1. Create a new paper project.
  2. Upload your project to your blog with a link back to The Paper Players.
  3. Provide a direct link to your blog post for your challenge entry.
  4. Please link your card to no more than FOUR challenges (including ours).
  5. Enjoy!
Please take note of these few rules as entries that do not comply will be deleted from the gallery. 

Pop over to The Paper Players and see what the rest of the team have done with these delicious colours.
