Chalkboard Easel Teacher Appreciation Card {Paper Smooches SPARKS}

Hello friends, 

It's time for another Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge!  This week it's ANYTHING GOES and here's my take: 

I have Teacher Appreciation on the mind because that's where my Anything went.  From a kraft card base, I used the Quote tags dies to make an easel.  I embossed the sentiment from the Uplifters stamp set onto black card stock and made a ledge from a brown card stock rectangle.  I added an apple using the School Icons dies and rolled up a scrap piece of white card stock to serve as chalk.

Ready to play?  You know the routine!   You have until 11:59 PT on Saturday, April 25 to link up your take on this week's challenge to the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog for a chance to win a $30.00 gift certificate to the Paper Smooches store.  

Be sure to check out the amazing inspiration from the other members of the SPARKS design team playing along with this week's challenge: 

I can't wait to see what you create!  

Thanks for stopping by!
