Teacher gift sign using School Colors 3D project for My Pink Stamper

I made the initial sign from ELEGANT EDGES Cricut cartridge cut at 11.12in in H & 9.10 in W.  Using the Oblong feature on the Gypsy/keypad overlay on # 31.
 I used plain old cardboard that comes with your paper from the LSS. Using the Scrap-booking paint from Making Memories I painted in Pansy Purple.   Inked around the edging using Grey Flannel ink from Close to My heart
I then created in my Gypsy using the Font in CAR DECALS creating most of the words.  Makin' the Grade cartridge was used for the Apple and the teachers name.   I cut all the words out using Yellow vinyl from Oh My Crafts.
Red cardstock for the Apple cut out 2 times with yellow.  I used the yellow words inside the apple.  The Apple is 3d suing the dots. Close to My Heart twine was used to hang up the sign.
The black A-Z is rub-ons from Glitz Rub-ons and the smaller rub-ons are from Making Memories.  Both rub-ons have been in my stash for a while - perfect to have when you need it most!
I wanted to put a pic of a roadrunner (school mascot) but will go to the school this week and take a pic of it!  Hope you like it!

Not only is this a present for my 1st graders teacher BUT also entering it at  for making a 3D school project.  Sorry I didn't have any of your stamps to use..  One day I will :)
