Bitten by the Bug's Apple Challenge!

This is a card I made for Bitten By the Bug's Apple Challenge. The apple can be found on Cricut's Doodlecharm's cartridge. I used Purely Pomegranate for the apple. I stamped the sky blue paper with my alphabet background stamp. The black "school" paper is like a thousand years ago and is from Provo Craft. Remember the paper Michaels had forever? This was from there! I know some of you still have it tucked away in your stash somewhere....fess up! Anyway, I did sand it down to tone it down a bit, because it was pretty glossy! The little caterpillar ( I know it isn't a worm...but close enough!) was from Hambo Stamps. I colored him in using my Prismas and Gamsol. The sticker was from an old sticker pack I had from DCWV.

I feel like a complete idiot, cuz I was nominated for the Nice Matters award and the Thinking Blogger award by Kelly Sampson and Kim Burress. I can't get the awards to post. I saved them in my pics file....I can see them there....but when I try to download them....I get a little box with the x in it. If you have any advice...please share. So thank you ladies for nominating me....I feel truly blessed to be in such great company! I think the world of you!
