An Apple Girl

Hi girls. Thank you for calling in to see what is on my blog. I really hope you like what you find here and maybe even get some inspiration from it. I am quite excited because my eldest son, Sarah and Jonathan are coming to visit for a few days. I just hope I manage to keep well enough to enjoy the visit.
Anyway on to my card for today. I didn't make this with any challenge in mind and enjoyed getting to spend some time in my craftroom. I have used an image that I was given as a gift from a blogging friend and I have been dying to use it. I don't know what it is called so if anyone knows please let me know. I coloured it using my Copics. The papers are from Nitwit Collections and I have used Bazzil as a mount. The flowers are from Wild Orchid and Magnolia. The border is cut with an EK Success punch and the ribbon is from my stash.
I hope you like this and would love to hear what you think of it if you have time to leave a comment. Have a great weekend and stay safe and healthy.
