A Gift for my Teacher - Softpencil Thursday DT Card

Thursday once again and time for another Softpencil Thursday.  As I told you last week Elizabeth has just released a set of back to school images and this week we are showcasing another of those wonderful images.  This one is called A gift for my Teacher and you can buy it here.
Here is my card:
I used Elizabeth's fabulous image and coloured it with my promarkers, hope you can see the shading on the apple. 
I decided to make it a thank you card for a teacher and used one of the fabulous word die cuts from Die Cut Dreams. 
I used a pale green chalk and then edged it with sponging using red chalk ink,which I also used on the die cut backing for the word.  I added a red ribbon and a couple of red flowers to the die cut. 
I used a wide red ribbon which I adhered to the striped backing paper which was from a Papermania capsule collection and added a little green heart gem to the centre of the flower.

Remember to stop by the rest of the fabulous DT blogs and see what they have to show you, you won't be disappointed.
I will enter this card into the challenges at:
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Animal Crackers
Bee Crafty - Anything Goes
