Apple Tree

The sketch this week from 365 Card Challenge:

Now after making this card, I thought that the tree would make a great apple tree so I tried it out with some October Afternoon paper.  I did morph the sketch a bit but you can still see it there.  I also included the Raise the Bar Challenge - include fruit; The Cupcake Craft Challenge - Food and Drink.  The clouds are from Practicing Creativity and the sentiment stamp is Unity.  The tree is from The Cutting Cafe.  I paper pieced it so it fits the Paper Sundaes Challenge.
