Back to School with Cherry Lemonade Trendy Twine

Hi everyone!  There are two new Trendy Twine colors releasing today--Cherry Lemonade and Lemon Peppermint.  

We are highlighting Cherry Lemonade this month with a Back to School theme!  

I made this card with the new Cricut Close to My Heart Artbooking cartridge.  The mat with the numbers is shown in the book as a photo mat.  And the apple is an extra page element.  It cuts out in one color, but I cut another in green and just cut the leaf and stem on to add some more color to the apple.  I all decided to give it some dimension and pop dotted two together. The Cherry Lemonade twine was perfect to tie it all together! 

Be sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine and see the other design team projects.  And please join in our challenge this month:
