Your'e Sweeter than Jelly Beans :-)

Hi Friends,
Sharing with  you all today a simple Teacher's Day card for my Son's teacher !! My son is 5 1/2  and I thought this would be a fun card to give to his Teacher :)..Here's a look at it first :-
I had seen these three dimensional apples on Pinterest....And really liked the idea a lot...Those twigs are real and the apples are made using a circle punch and  the leaves are punched and  trimmed...This card is so unlike my style !!..And  I think I really struggled with this ....I kind of felt like adding some layers to it :P..But I was sure that I only wanted a Black BG as it contrasted very well with those apples!!..So this is what I ended up with ....Would love your feedback and suggestions on this one :)

Supplies used :-
Black CS- Fabriano Elle erre !
Apples -Elle Erre !
Punches -Circle Punch and Jef leaf Punch
Alphas-Webster's pages {Botanical Christmas collection}
Star and Sentiment Sticker- Jillibean Soup {Chicken Soup Dumpling Collection}
Letter "A" -Itsy Bitsy

Challenges Entered :-
1.Lulupu- Make your own Embellishments
2.Hands 2 Hearts Challenges - Teacher's day
3.Lollipop Crafts -Back to School
Have a Good  Day everyone :)
