An Apple A Day!

To support my wonder DD - Kim - and her design work for Wednesday challenges at 365 Cards, I made this card to fit the challenge
Tri-Color, Day #73. I really wanted to just make the card with the red/white scheme to keep it in the CAS category, but oh no, I need to add 2 more colors to make it TRI color! After trying numerous combinations of blue, red, yellow, green, I decided to keep the 2 extra colors to a minimum. Green for the leaf and yellow on the brad. Still a CAS!

I used the sketch from
that is a perfect fit for
the vision I
had for this card.

I kept the inside simple,
mostly because I really
couldn't decide on a
purpose for it - so it
became a simple note card.

Little Red Wagon wanted brads.
Wild Flower Patch asked for Ribbon, Sparkle and Demension.
Res-Q Challenge asked for Super Foods! Apple must be good, it keeps the Dr. away!
The challenge at Totally Gorjuss is to go round and round, or use circles.
Creative Belli Challenge  asked for hole punches, did so, for the brad

Another challenge I am entering this card in is Charisma Cardz to feature a sweet treat!
Although I'm not entering the following project in Charisma Cardz I wanted to share it with you in case you need an easy gift.
To the left are candy bar wrappers I made for staff during our required MAP (Missouri Assessment Program) this year. I took an old Missouri Map and cut it up for the wrapper part. The stop sign sentiment was generated on the computer.

That's all for now - have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Well, aren't you the cutest!! Love, LOVE your take on the tri-color challenge! Thanks for continuing to support my DT roles, mother dear, but I do expect a lot more product from you this summer ("school's out, school's out, teacher let the monkeys out!")!! HEHE!

You know I think this would also fit the CAS-tastic challenge this week which was circles...

Aloha, KL

It's that time of year to be thanking our teachers, and this card would be just perfect. Thanks for joining in on the fun over at Belli Challenge.

Love what you did with the apple punch. So cute! and fantastic job. I find it funny that you have a hard time adding colours and I find it hard to take away colours and making my cards CAS. You seem to have a wonderful nack for it.
