Thankful for Apples

Here's a Thank You card I created using an older image from SNB... this is Apple Basket ...

I am entering this creation into these challenges:

Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - Thank You
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Thanks
Penny's Paper Crafty - Give Thanks
CardMaking Mamas - #33 Thanks

Ingredients: White cardstock; Dotted Paper and trim; Sienna Aqua Promarker; Water Pen; Stardust Pens; Metallic Red Ink Pen; Black Fineliner Pen; Green Chalk Ink; Red Rhinestones; Lace Scrap... 

I coloured the image with a marker and water pen, and used glitter pen for the apples and basket trim.  Some apples were coloured with metallic red ink before adding the glitter pen layer. I fussy cut the image.  I created layers with green dotty paper, and a co-ordinating scalloped trim (both edged in green ink) and fixed them directly to the white cardbase. I fixed the image in place, and added black faux stitches, finishing with red rhinestones ... which for some reason appear to be a coppery colour here in the picture!  Oops... and added a quick sentiment for flavour...
Edit: A few have mentioned the 'reverse scallop detail' ... I didn't know what they were talking about!  Now I see ... It APPEARS that the red/white/green patterned scallop is reversed - that the scallop is a negative cut into the green dotty paper .... it isn't.... it IS ACTUALLY the red/white/green paper... I inked the edges of the scallop, and it blends so darn well, it's illusionary!
