cqc #219 and vlv week 3...

Hello friends!!  Hope you are enjoying your weekend!  Have a little card to share that I made for two challenges, Viva La Verve week 3 and Colour Q.  I love this week's VLV sketch... clean and simple... right up my alley!  I used two Verve sets for my card:  Better Together and Teachers Count.   Teachers Count is one of my favorite Verve sets.  I love it because of the wonderful sentiments, as well as those cute little apples!  I die cut the apples using the matching apple dies and then stamped them using red, yellow and green inks.  The sentiment panel was die cut using a die from the A Jillian Vance Design Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop die set.   The mixed media looking border image is from the Verve set Better Together.  That was stamped using medium blue ink.  The sentiment panel was adhered per the sketch and then the apples.  The card base is Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock.  I just love how the Fog cardstock looks with white.  Unlike the card that I posted the other day this card makes me happy, happy, happy!!
