Whimsical Wednesday - Color Challenge

This week at Whimsical Wednesday's we are having a color challenge and have a photo for inspiration. We all had to use the colors Yellow and Red and then we could chose another color/colors from the photo on our project.
Next week is my kids last week of school so I decided to do some thank you cards for their teachers.  I used Yellow,red and green.

This is the inside of the card.

The Thank you on the front of the card is from the Happy Homecoming stamp set.  The inside sentiment is from My Teacher Rocks.  Both are from My Creative Time.
Here is the picture we used for color inspiration.
Cricut Cartridges -
Doodlecharms for Apple cut at 4.5"
George and Basic Shapes for welded Rectangle for shaped card cut at 7"
I welded the shadow of the apple to the rectangle for a total size of 9.57 then scored it at 5".
My Creative Time Stamp Sets  -  My Teacher Rocks
                                                    Happy Homecoming
Patterned Paper  -  Me and My Big Ideas, School Days
Cardstock  -  New Leaf, summer Sunrise, Pure Poppy and Dark Chocolate, Paper Trey Ink
1" and 7/8" circle punches, oval punch
White Gel Pen
Ribbon from Michaels

This is another version of the card I did.  I used some Lemon Drop twine from The Twinery to hang to sentiment on the front.  The thank you on the front of this card is from My Teacher Rocks stamp set.
Thank you for stopping by.  Please pop over to Whimsical Wednesdays for a peek at the rest of the Design Team's Projects.  We can't wait to see what you will link up for us to see!
Love and Hugs,
Cathryn :)
