CHF Challenge - Shaped Cards

It's Monday again and the challenge is on!  This week it's all about shaped cards.  Talk about a hard challenge for me.  I was convinced my head doesn't think this way... so this was a GREAT challenge.  Get me thinking outside the A2 card box, so to speak.

Apple Appreciation

This card went together quickly.  I sketched the shape of the apple on my folded patterned paper and hand cut.  The center sentiment is popped up and is single layered, but has a finished edge from the Silver Leafing pen by Krylon.  It's such a neat finishing touch!  Super simple, actually!  I surprised myself.
