Speedy Fox & Friends - Back to School & CCEE1339 - Fruit

My card this weekend is for two challenges -- Speedy Fox and Friends are celebrating back to school; and the  CCEE Stampers are celebrating Johnny Appleseed Day by making a card using fruit -- extra points for apples.   I made a slate board using some wood designer paper and black cardstock -- and the Chalkboard Technique for the message.  I found the perfect designer paper for my background.

Be sure to check out both the Mark's Finest Papers blog and the CCEE Stampers blog to see the rest of the cards for both of these challenges.

Paper:  MFP Deep Scarlet, Black Linen, Snow Storm Smooth; Recollections Apples DP, unknown wood DP
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Whisper White
