I'm really happy with how the text came out in the background. I printed it on some paper, including the stitching, and then cut it out. On the apple I used flocking for the leaves and cheeks.
This card came together very quickly thanks to two challenges!
The Challenge #1: Use the theme "An Apple a Day", follow the sketch, use red green and yellow, add something black, include an apple and use the Cricut.
The Challenger #1: Jitterbuggin'
The Challenge #2: Follow the sketch!
The Challenger #2: Crazy 4 Challenges
Both challenges have sketches to follow and while I didn't strictly follow the first one, I grabbed some specific elements from it. I layered the circle, brought in the stitching and bannered the text along the top of the card.
