Addicted to CAS Challenge #144 - Apples

Hello there, CAS Addicts! It's time for a new challenge! Our Hostess is Anja, and she has chosen 'Apples' for our code word!
Before we begin, let's review the rules for the challenge:

Don't forget, as always, Happy Little Stampers (HLS) is our Sponsor, and Kylie is generously awarding the winner with a $20.00 GC to the store!

  Happy Little Stampers was created in 2015 by Kylie (owner of ATSM and ATCAS). Kylie wanted to bring out a line of stamps that were useful for every day crafters. From cute to whimsical images, from every day to funky sentiments there is something for everyone!

We have a super talented Guest Designer for this challenge! You may know her as Sweet Kobylkin or as the winner of our recent 'Masculine' Challenge...her name is Ksenija.

I started making cards in 2010. At the beginning, it was a hobby to channel my creativity, but today it means much more to me. I am active on Instagram and Facebook, where I am a.k.a. @sweetkobylkin, and have been designing for many international challenge blogs and brands. Over the years I have met so many talented designers from all over the world. I am happy that years ago I have discovered card making and found a passionate, sharing and supportive community of people.

Clean and Simple is my favourite style. My cards may seem very simple by design, but every card starts with a few sketches and careful positioning of all elements. I often use the Golden Section rule to make my cards. Although I enjoy Clean and Simple style cards, I do not like “empty” cards. On my blog, I give tips and hints on working with different layouts and techniques to avoid this emptiness impression and keep a card CAS.
