thanks for a great year..

Hey friends!!  Stopping in with a card for a two challenges:  Freshly Made Sketches and Color Throwdown.  The school year is almost over for my two boys and so I made a thank you card for my little guy's teacher.  I used the Reverse Confetti set All Apples as well as the Reverse Confetti set Class Act.   The mini MISTI helped me get a nice dark green impression on my apple.   I really like that little tool and I'm so glad that I finally broke down and got one!  Stamped all the other images and then die cut everything with the matching dies.  The patterned paper matches the green ink I used (both Stampin Up!) and it had cream in it making it perfect for the Color Throwdown challenge.   Cut a piece, adhered it to my kraft card base and then added the little notebook page, apple and leaves.  Super quick, but that is how I like it, lol!!  




Thanks for stopping...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft and cream; Patterned paper:  Stampin Up!; Stamps and dies:  Reverse Confetti; Inks:  Stampin Up! Gumball Green and Crumb Cake

I also recently purchased the Mini Misti and am loving it. I'm glad I waited until the Mini version was available.
