Apple Farmin'

Good evening!  I'm so glad this weekend is finally over!  We had a shocker of a trip this weekend... starting with one of our guests being an hour late arriving for our 3 hour trip to Mykonos (we wanted to arrive before dark), then I got sick with some kind of stomach bug later that night (let me tell you, the galley of a boat is one of the last places you want to be when you are already feeling ill), out internet connection was pretty iffy all weekend, and today we had an extra 9 people join us for lunch!

Anyways, now we are back on dry land and I'm back at my craft desk.  I have a quick card to share today that I made last week using Celeste Amberglow - Farmin' Apples for the Little Miss Muffet Pollycraft release, but before I show you, did you know you still have time to take advantage of Barbara's special out of town offer?

*Special Offer*
Barbara will be out of town for the weekend but she has a special release offer - place any order between now and Sunday and receive a random digi for free! Don't worry - she'll make sure it's a Little Misses digi that you don't already have. :D This offer will last until Sunday, June 10, at midnight Central US Time. Then all orders will be fulfilled the next day and your fun can begin!

Here's my card:

The papers are from Crate Paper and Simple Stories and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.  The sentiment is a sticker from SRM and the apple charm is from The Secret Garden on Da Wanda.   I coloured Celeste with copics (see pic below) and dabbed some linen soaked in colourless blender over her overalls for a bit of a denimy texture.  I coloured her apple with a base layer of yellow before I added in the reds.

 I used this week''s sketch from Feeling Sketchy.

Here's a close-up of Celeste:

And here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Oh...that little apple charm just calls my name!

I was wondering if you were just starting to buy copic markers, which ones would you begin with? I get so confused when I see the sets but know I can't afford the 300+ dollar one!
