More Apples for Red, White, and Blue Challenges

I seem to be in an "apple theme" mood. This is my second card to post today and I used apples again. Guess when you are inspired by the red, white and blue of the Fourth of July Holiday, you think of American apple pie thus the thought of apples.
I used a digital image from Isabella's Sketchbook and a sketch layout from Card Positioning Systems shown below. I also used a digital paper downloaded from Pixel Paint Papers for the background and paper piecing the napkin in the bowl. Used gingham ribbon and 2 buttons layered to finish.
Isabella's Challenge: Anything goes with an Isabella image
Simon Says Challenge: Use checks, plaid, gingham, etc. on your creation!
STV Inspiration Challenge: Do something a little patriotic.. use red white and blue or use  any of the colors or anything that you see in the inspiration photo posted for the challenge.
Frosted Designs: The first challenge for July is to use Stars and Stripes, and red, white and blue! Hope the ribbon counts as stripes.
Stamp Something: Draw inspiration from the colors of our flag.
Digital Tuesday: You can make anything as long as it is Red, White & Blue and use a digi somewhere on your creation.
Card Positioning Systems: Challenge Sketch 174

Digital Image: Isabella's Sketchbook-"Apples in a Basket"
Stamp: Mark's Finest Papers- Sentiment from "Apples and Camellia"
Ink: Memento Lady Bug
Digital Paper: Pixel Paint Papers "July 4 Stars"
Paper: Georgia Pacific White CS, DCWV Blue Texture Adhesive Paper
Ribbon: SU Gingham Check
Buttons from My Collection

Guess I should of looked for a challenge to use buttons to enter too???
