Apples for the teacher

Amy over at Scrap or Dare had an interesting challenge this week, to make a tree with leaves that are anything but leaves. I think she was looking for something a little more creative than apples, but I was aiming for a back to school card for the Pink Elephant and thought the 2 would go well. Colours are from Kelly at the Colour Chef, crystal blue, cranberry, cocoa and cream. All supplies are CTMH.
Not feeling too chatty today, just want to pass along my best wishes to my cousin Phil. He was in a motorcycle accident in Spain, he's out of intensive care, but we're still waiting to hear more news. Got my fingers crossed - we're thinking of you Phil!
