Waltzingmouse Blog Party - May Teacher Appreciation

Hi all!  I am joining in for this months Waltzingmouse Blog Party! The theme this month is Teacher Appreciation.  

Here is what I have created for today's hop.
On a Buff Ivory card base, I layered my pieced patterned papers which are all from my scrap pile.  I die-cut a gingham apple using my Cricut which I have added to the center of  the stamped Labels 1 die using Very Vintage Labels 1.  I framed the apple focal image, using a die-cut from Decorative Labels 1.
I took a length of black satin ribbon and wrapped it around the left side of the card front and tied in a bow embellishing with a button and adding a triple twine bow. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment from Fancy Phrases to a banner and added to upper right of the card face. 
That's it for me today, I hope you are inspired to play along with the WMS Blog Party!
