Color Throwdown Countdown #458 and The Paper Players PP360 - A Theme Challenge from Claire

I don’t do it often but I have made one card to meet the requirements of two challenges. This week at Color Throwdown we are working with the colors RED, GREEN and YELLOW. And over at The Paper Players, we have a theme challenge, and are making “back to school” cards. So to pull the two challenges together, I have “A is for Apple”, a basic school lesson in red, yellow and green. Enjoy.

Supplies: Papertrey Ink Horizontal Stripes Coverplate, Simon Says Stamp Alphabet Blocks, Memory Box Classic Lower Alphabet, My Favorite Things By the Letters Uppercase, unknown apple punch, Kurtake watercolors, Copics, Stardream
