Time again for a new challenge at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.
It's #129 and our Talented Teamie, Dorte, has chosen the theme "Autumn/Harvest for this one.

I chose this adorable image from Stampabilities of the House Mouse eating an apple

My card recipe

Corner punch is Paper Shapers
Leaf border is Martha Stewart
Sentiment is from a Paper STack from Reflections at Michael's
Cheese cloth is tucked under the leaf
Distress inks in different colors sponged on leaf
Dyed twine from my LSS along with Baker's twine
The darling little apple charm is from my wonderful friend America!
Orange stickles around leaf border and leaf die
Glossy Accents on the apple
