Mom - You are the best teacher!

Helloooo my dear friends!!
I have come up with another card and wow..this is my 50th Post!! :O

You might have guessed already that it is something related to Mom?
Well, yeah! I have made a Mother's Day card. I know it's too early. But why waste time ;)
Here is my card:

I have followed the sketch by STAMPlorations Challenge # 30 which is this:

I have used a whole lotta techniques in this card!

Firstly, I made a cute pencil by distressing it with wild honey. I applied Ranger Texture paste using alphabet stencil. This gives your paper such an amazing look! (I am in love with it! ;)) I let it dry overnight. I used paper piecing technique to add the sharpened edges, lead and rubber ;) I also made vertical stripes using Pigma Black marker pen.

I have used an actually notepad paper in this card. I tore one and distressed the edges with Old Paper distress ink.

The blackboard technique is so much in vogue that I had to try this! I used a black paper stock and heat embossed using Versa mark and White Embossing Powder. Use of Stamps is mandatory for STAMPlorations, that's why, I stamped the word "MOM" using Kaisercraft Cartoon Alphabet Stamp Set that I have and rest all is hand-written by Versa Mark Pen. I wanted to keep the whole card natural so didn't mind if the chalkboard had a handwritten look.

I made one apple and fuzzy cut it out from a red colored card stock and adhered it as shown above.

I am entering this card for the below challenges:
1.STAMplorations bi-weekly Challenge # 30 -which ends on 28/3
2.Addicted to Stamps and More # 136 -Anything goes which ends on 24/3
3.C.R.A.F.T Challenge # 303 -Mother's Day which ends on 25/3
