Back to School with Trendy Twine

I wanted to pop on here and share my entry for the current Trendy Twine Challenge.
For this challenge the recipe is:
   Back to school theme
   Primary Colors - some or all
   A,B,C or 1,2,3
   Trendy Twine

I didn't have any Trendy Twine for this color scheme so I used some embroidery floss in red, yellow, and blue and braided them together to make the bow.
The apple, pencil, and glue are paper pieced from the new release stamp set I'm Nerdy from Stamp Annie Thing.
The abc and 123 are from Tim Holtz Once Upon A Time die.
The card is a black cardstock base and I cut strips from wood grain scrapbook paper to frame it.

Halloween Card

I hate to be so brief but I am headed to my night class in a few minutes...
I want to share my card with everyone! I am super proud of this one- it is one of my best cards to date IMO :) It uses my favorite card making technique which is layering!
I am linking it up in 3 challenges!!

Here's my stash that I wanted to use for the card... I have seen so many wonderful projects using twine and sequins I have been planning to get on board with the trend. I have had these for ages but they have been very neglected. As for sequins this is my first time using them on a card!! So glad I did!

These are the challenges I'm entering it in! If you aren't too busy you can join in on the fun too! Thanks for stopping by :)
