Double Duty

Good Morning all.  Have a card to post that was supposed to do double duty for the Papertrey Pals Pallenge and the Waltzingmouse sketch challenge  below but my camera wouldn't cooperate last night so now it is single duty - lol  

(btw I saw this sketch at Diane's blog and she made a beautiful card that you should check out!)

The Pallenge requirements are to use only PRIMARY colors on  your card.  You could use some black or white but not as a focal point.  Wow Ted, talk about a tough challenge :)

Here is my take - please disregard the shadows.

Since we were using primary colors, I decided to make a school themed card.  The red background is embossed with the Swiss Dots folder.  The blue is cut with Papertrey Ink Mat stack 4 die. 

For the sentiment and apple, I used Papertrey Ink's Teacher Apple & Signature Greetings stamp sets.  I like how the yellow ribbon pops the blue off the card.

Around the edges, I brushed SU craft white for some added effect.  I also used Sakura gel sparkle for dimension on the apple.

Hope everyone has a great LONG weekend full of fun!
Thanks for stopping by ~ MamaReebs
