Just a Note School Card

I recently received my order from The Paper Parade with a paper pad called Class of '87 by Kaisercraft.  I had never heard of that brand before, but the paper looked cute so I figured I'd give it a whirl.  Am I ever glad I did!  It is such a wonderful 6" stack for school!  Here is the card I created with it.
I popped up the tag with foam adhesive and made bottle cap by punching a 1" circle from one of the pages. I bought the flat bottle caps and the 1" clear epoxy overlay at Hobby Lobby (they are the Paper Studio brand).  I added some texture and shine by adding glossy accents to all of the apples and made little dots on the red patterned paper. The final touch was the turning the corner of the lined paper over and using the circular paper clip.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
