CCEE Stampers-Back to School


The CCEE Stampers challenge given this week by hostess, Anne Harmon, is to make a back to school card. I thought just an apple or two would be the perfect image. The image from Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps, A Heinrich Co. called Lesson Learned.  My sentiment is from the same set.

I colored my green apple with  Copics and paper pieced the other apple to match my dp. It is a really simple card, adding my handmade banner and some corner pieces and that's it.

We hope you'll join us this week with your 'back to school' card.

I'm entering my card into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge-Anything Goes
Stampin' Royalty has a back to school theme for their challenge this week.

Recipe:
Stamps-MFP Lesson Learned
Paper-unknown dp
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories-EK Success Victorian corner punch, Copics

Benzi, I totally love how you did the one apple in red gingham so it ties in with your paper. Wouldn't a red apply and some b/w houndstooth look good? LOL! This is a wonderful BTS card. Hugz!
