This month it's all about the farm at Gingersnap Creations. The chestnut theme challenge is farm fresh. At this time of year, the apples are fresh and scrumptious. It's fun to go to the farm and pick your own basket of apples. That's what my card represents. The hay is baled and the apples are picked.
I used the stacked nesties technique from the current TJ newsletter for my card design. the image stamps and sentiment are from Kitchen Sink Stamps "Harvest". The background panel is wood paper. I thought it would give a rustic look to the card.

Color recipes: (All inks are Adirondack unless noted.)
Apples -- 1 salmon, 1 watermelon, 3 Lady Bug (Memento), 4 Crimson
Basket -- 1 sandal, 2 caramel, 3 ginger, 4 espresso
Hay -- 1 sandal, 2 butterscotch, 3 ginger
