Belli Challenge #31 - Back to School

This week's Belli Challenge is a theme - Back to School. I don't really have any "school" stamps, so I figured an apple card would be close enough. A child could give this to his teacher any time of the year.

I thought I would give you a little tip regarding the new Scallop Edge punch that is new in the Fall/Winter 2008 Stampin Up catalog. After you have punched out your row of scallops, save the little strip that is left over from the punching. You can see I used a tiny green strip of cardstock at the bottom of the red apple paper. That is the leftover piece after I punched out my scallop edge. :-)

Check out what the Belli Team has designed for this challenge:
