Back To School Apple

I am loving this adorable Apple with a Worm image from Meljen's Designs.  I made another school related card.  It all started with the Apple/Worm image that I colored up with my markers.  The card base went in many different direction before I settled on this design.  The DP is a combo of different companies.  The lined abc paper is Story Hour by October Afternoon and the pencils are The Boyfriend Collection by Cosmo Cricket.  They were add to a piece of yellow cardstock and then embellished with a piece of ribbon right where the 2 designs meet.  I added 3 black circle punches to the ribbon and top them with Crystal Effects to give a rivet look.  The apple/worm was added on top of the Story Hour paper with foam tape.  The whole piece was backed with a piece of black cardstock and then adhered to the white cardbase with foam tape.  For as easy as this card looks to make, it took me foreva' to bring it all together, which usually means leaving it be for a while.  This would make a great set of notecards for a special teacher. I hope you are enjoying the back to school days!

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:
Meljen's - Back to School
