ATC ChalkBoard Back 2 School

The Artist Trading Card ATC 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" piece of artwork is made using a Meljen digi, Little Chalk Board Color. Had used this digi to make a tag for a box of crayons gift and since I gave the Tag with the crayons away to neighbor I decided to make myself the ATC version.

Used Spellbinder Rectangle dies for layers. Added Glossy accents to the Apple in the digi. Added stickles to the star in the digi. Added a scrap piece of ribbon. Had one more piece at the bottom of my ribbon Rubbermaid container. I need to buy some more from Hobby Lobby and it is on sale tomorrow for 50% off.
