Creative Paper Trade - Tip Top # 1 Challenge

So I have totally been enjoying the 3 challenges that were issued at the Creative Paper Trade last week and thought I would complete all 3 of the challenges - this is the 3rd one and we were to use Squares!  So I immediately thought to use the free digi shape that they issued during the week!  Here is my submission for the Challenge!

I wanted to give a little dimension to the original digi so I printed it a number of times so I could raise the frame and add a second apple and leaf!

Details:  Creative Paper Trade-Week 1 Digi (Thanks), Patterned Paper:  Jillibean Blossom Soup (Red & White Polka Dot), Lined Paper (misc), Kraft Cardstock:  Bazzill, Twine & Ribbon:  PTI, Stickles, White Gel Pen 
  1. Print 3 copies of the Free Thanks Digi.
  2. Trim the centre out of the first one leaving only the Yellow Frame.
  3. Out of the Centre piece trim the apple shape.
  4. Trim only the green leaf from the 2nd printed digi.
  5. Then pop dot the yellow frame from the remaining printed digi.
  6. Score the centre of the cut apple and glue on top of the centre of the full printed digi.
  7. Score the Leaf cut in the centre and glue the folded part to the green leaf.
  8. Tie the Twine around the Apple stem
  9. Add Green Stickles to the leaf and set aside to dry.
  10. Cut a kraft card base.
  11. Cut the Rulled paper to fit in the card front and glue to the base of the card.
  12. Cut a banner shape from the Red and White polka dot patterned paper and glue to the centre of the card front.
  13. Attach a piece of yellow ribbon to the bottom of the digi cut once it is try and then pop dot off the centre of the top portion of the card.
  14. Round the 2 Bottom corners.
  15. Using the White Gel pen add the faux stitching lines.
