Warm Apple Pie and Picnics!

This card makes me wish for fresh apple pie with cinnamon ice cream. 
I wanted this to look like a pie sitting in an open window on a warm summer day. The wood grain paper helps the perception of the trim around the window. 

Once cool it is ready for a picnic or friends that may stop over.

I will be linking this up to the Let's Eat Challenge on the Cricut Circle Blog. The challenge is to create a project with a BBQ, Picnic, or Patio theme and use a gingham or check patterned. 

Here's how I did it...
Standard A2 card
Paper from my stash
Sentiment from Scrappy Mom Stamps
Pie/layers cut at 3.5" from Country Life, p 77
Frame from Create a critter sized to fit on my Gypsy

Very sweet Barb! I love the smell of pie baking in the oven! The gingham paper is perfect and the wood grain paper gives the effect you wanted.
