Amuse Bouche!!

It is that time again!! A Muse Bouche - Usually I am rushing to finish teacher gifts at the end of the school year - not this time!! This year I am going to get in good with Caleb's teacher at the beginning of the year. I've gathered a lot of things from her wish list and I'm going to give them to her along with this card.
The front actually is a window with the apple stamped on the inside - I used white pigment ink for the sentiment to look "chalkboard-y". The inside is cute too. I've been noticing that lately a lot of visual interest is put on the inside of cards too - not just the outside.
If Ms. Olssen decides she loves me this year I'll have to give part of the credit to A Muse!!

Chalkboard-y??? Are you sure that's a word? Sounds like something I'd make up, haha! Works for me!

This is so... cute! Love the way you snazzied up the inside- can I use "snazzied" if you used "chalkboard-y"? Love this design!
