Back to School Apple

I made this card today for a couple of challenges.  This cute little apple is from Doodlecharms and so is the apple border.  I welded a few of the border together with my gypsy to get it to go across the page.  I cut the top layer twice, once green and again in red.  Then I alternated the colors.  I cut the bottom layer in white and colored the leaf and stem with markers.  I used Peachy Keens Wide Eyed Kids face stamp for the big apple.  I live this set!!  I added some glossy accents to the eyes and mouth.  The big apple is on an Action Wobble.

The scalloped oval is from CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge and the stamp is one of the additional coordinating stamp sets that you an purchase called Harvest Happiness.   I covered it with glossy accents, added some foam tape and twine from My Craft Spot.  I think I attached it too soon and it cracked a little :(

For the base of the card I used Kraft cardstock and embossed with with the Cuttlebug Numbers folder, and inked it with Antique Linen Distress Ink.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

FCCB - #76 – Back to School
Peachy Keen - Let's Face it Friday - Back to School
