Apple shaped card

Hello and welcome to my blog,
I have a card to share with you today; it's another shape card made with my Cricut and Gypsy in the shape of an apple. I used another Magnolia stamp coloured with Distress inks for my card and used K&Co Que Sera Sera paper to decorate interior and exterior.
I used Patina Stickles and distressed the edges of the paper. The sentiments are from Hero Arts and I used a Fiskars squeeze punch to cut them out. The flower and leaves are also made with punches.
The lace is sprayed with Spring Rain and Moonlight Glimmer Mist. I  used gunpowder pearls from Papermania for the flower center and some accents.
A close-up of Tilda with her apple bucket. These images are really fun to colour and I am finding my way with the Distress inks from Tim Holz, so much that I have even bought more colours.

We went on a short break to London this weekend and had a lovely time. We stayed in the absolute center of London between baker Street and Oxford Street. We visited the National Gallery, Camden Market, Fortnum and Mason, The Royal Academy of Arts, Covent Garden, Soho, the Liberty department store and so much more until our legs ached. We ended our days in China Town where we went for dinner and had a very good time. Just some pictures to share, we actually didn't take many and I didn't bother at all.
The Stables Market with lots of stalls and food and drinks.
 Lovely sculptures at the Stables.

The railway bridge above the Lock and barges
 The locks.
 A lot of shops at Camden High Street are decorated with this type of artwork, making it a really fun street.
