Apple Computer Back to School Card

Please click here for Tip Thursday 8/27 Watercolor Pencils.  Please visit during Sept for new Tip Thursdays.
Made this card using Cricut Explore Air 2 for laptop in this back to school card. Used my calligraphy to doodle some letters in the 4 corners of the laptop screen (this helped to cover up the tiny glue spots that was used to attach the vellum to the cardstock. Used a CTMH stamp/die for apple that I colored. Added some coordinating paper with computer technoogy pattern.
