Tons of fun with challenges

I made this card with 3 challenges in mind! I can't believe I did it. The three challenges are from The Pink Elephant ~ a school theme. The Color Throw down where the colors were Bermuda bay, green galore and barely banana. Lastly I used the sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Here are the deets!
Stamps include (background) Unity stamps from School Rock Star and the apples are from Hero Arts.
Inks and paper all from SU! are Bermuda Bay, Green Galore and Barely Banana.

Ribbon is SU from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. Scallop Square punch is SU.

So what did I do....
I stamped my card with the stamps from Unity to create my background. I then stamped my apples with my hero arts stamps and then punched them out using the SU scallop square punch. I then punched the green galore squares. I used dimensionals to pop us the apples. I adhered the apples to the card using regular old adhesive. I added the ribbon, tied it then used a thank you stamp from Unity and SU Bermuda bay ink to stamp the sentiment.

I hope you like it. Being a teacher by trade I would love to receive this card.

Happy Sunday and I hope you have had a great weekend!
