KWerner Color Challenge #51

Hey everyone! I am home taking a break from Field Day at my kids school! My daughter came home with me, she got bit below the knee Saturday from a mosquito, two days later it was infected, WOW that happens fast!! So yesterday the Dr. called in some antibiotics just to be safe. It looks better, but it hurts to bend it, so she can't run on it, so I brought her home from school!


It is teacher's appreciation this week, so I wanted to make a card for my son's teacher, she is such a great teacher!! I decided to use the colors from Kristina's Color Challenge. I really LOVED these colors!! I finally found a wood grain stamp at Michael's, and I LOVE it!! I wanted to do something with apples, because it is a teacher's card, so I figured, apples come from trees, so the wood grain stamp would work well! I really like how it turned out! It was so hard to take pictures of this card! I think I took about a million pictures!! LOL! I first made the apples with clear embossing powder, but you couldn't see them on the paper in the picture. So I decide to use white embossing powder. That stuff is messy, there is powder where there wasn't suppose to be!! I'll have to get a embossing buddy (I think that's what it is called). So here's my card, I'll try to be back later with a post about the Teacher's Appreciation event we had at school this morning!

Supplies:

Paper- ColorBok- rose and mustard CS, chocolate and white CS
Stamps- PaperTrey Ink- mixed messages, All Night Media- wood grain
Ink- Versamark-watermark
Accessories- White & clear embossing powder, white satin ribbon, corner rounder
EDITED TO ADD: I forgot to mention the apple stamp is from a Fall stamp set I got from the Target $ spot last year.
Have a Blessed Day!
