Apple Thank You

I was just messing around with some of my punches that don't get used quite often enough and came up with a cute little apple thank you card.  Would make a great Teacher Thank You card!

I absolutely love the "chalkboard" DP that is quite old and no longer available that I know of.  I am sure there is something similar to it out there in the paper world that would work as a replacement.  I made a center rectangular panel to add the punched apples and the sentiment.  I actually pulled out my Versa Mark ink and clear embossing powder to give the sentiment a deeper value.  The red DP is from a fall kit of papers by Imagine That and they are really old.  The center panel is added to the card base with foam dots and the red part of the apple is also added to the green apple base with foam dots.  A little black ribbon, a red button and some black hemp finish off this card.  Be sure and stop back by tomorrow and check out the matching gift set I made using this same theme.

Stamps - Sentiment (Hampton Arts)
Paper - Chalkboard DP (?), Fall kit (Imagine That)
Misc - Black ink, Versa Mark ink, Clear embossing powder(SU!), Apple punch (Martha Stewart), Corner Rounder (EK Success), Black ribbon, red button, Black hemp (SU!) 

Challenges for my card:
