Strange Fruit

Welcome back!  It's back to school week for the kids and myself.  I made a set of these for DS's teacher.  She's a real recycle buff and got a kick out of the use of scraps to make her cards.  I layered many strips of green on double-sided tape and then ran it through my Big Shot with my apple Nesties.  I know, only a teacher would have the apple set!  The sentiment is from Gina K's Fanciful Tags.  I hand drew the frame.
