How Do You Like Them Apples?

Hi All!  Soooo...I just couldn't resist this title, lol :)  Doesn't really have much to do with the card, other than there's apples in the image, but try as I might once the thought was there I just couldn't think of anything else!  I've just got a quick little card to share- I've had this image (Orchard) printed, waiting to be colored, for some time now but other things always seemed to take priority so when I saw the photo inspiration challenge over on the Saturated Canary Challenge blog and it had a tree in it I knew that I finally had my chance.  I colored her with my Copics, of course, to match some paper from MME and Echo Park which also incorporate some elements from the photo like the wood in the patterned paper and the teal color.  Then I added some bling, flowers and some cheesecloth which is quickly becoming a staple in my card making to finish it off.  Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look- I hope you all have a wonderful end to your week :)

Oh Katie, I DO love your tittle...haha! Gorgeous Picture and coloring as always! I have to admit that I have become a little partial to the cheesecloth as well!

Seems everyone loves cheesecloth incl me but I cannot get it here in Australia for some reason...if anyone can tell me where to get it I would be forever grateful?
