We hope you'll play along!  The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!  Please visit the Curtain Call Challenge blog for all the challenge info and deadline.   

Love You to My Core card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Paper SmoochesHere's my design based on the inspiration photo. I used warm, earthy color tones and an apple image on the card.  The layout comes from the current challenge at Sunday Stamps

My apple image is from the Paper Smooches Falling for You stamp set. I colored it with Copic markers and carefully cut it out, then used foam tape to adhere it to a cream panel stamped with the set's "love you to my core" sentiment.  After matting the sentiment panel on chocolate brown cardstock, I adhered it to a kraft card base over a golden yellow panel with some stitching detail along the bottom and a long, red fishtail flag strip.

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration:
