Tilda with Apples - a fall birthday card :)

**Edited to add - this card came in the top 3 at PaperPlay Challenges! Thanks Ladies!!**

Happy weekend everyone!

Today I have a cute card to show you that I made for my MIL's birthday. I have so many cards laying around my house, I really could have given her one of those, but well, I just can't help myself. Any excuse to make a new one really.

When I started the card, I had all intentions of entering it into the All That Scraps Third Magnolia challenge... which is Fall with a Fold... but as the idea developed, it became less of a "fall" card and more of a birthday card, so Pam, I'm sorry! I think my papers and the first image are still very fall themed, but the rest of the card... I'll leave that up to you to decide :) Maybe my raffia tie and Kraft cardstock gets me over that rustic hurdle?

I've made an "accordian card" so when the raffia is untied, it opens out to reveal more images. There is a great tutorial HERE if you want to give it a go yourself.

So my card tells a little story... Tilda went and picked her apples... then she did some baking but made a big mess... and the end result is a yummy apple cake and a nice cuppa. I know the images are out of order, lol, but they worked better on the card that way.
Magnolia-licious Highlites is also having a fun blog hop called "Whats cookin". The DT have created some fun projects and now the rest of us can play along and make a project with a recipe or food element... so this is my entry over there too!
Paperplay Challenges this week has a colour combo of Blue, Orange and Olive green so I think my card fits in over there too.
