ABC Back 2 School Card using Cri-Kits

My BFF was approached by Cri-Kits to give away a set of Cri-Kits pens and holder.  I told her I would be happy to create something to help her promote her giveaway!!! You will have more than one chances to win/enter!!!!  read on....
While I was thinking on what to create, I decided to kill two birds with one stone, so I created this card to enter Cristina's Back 2 School Challenge.
I created this card using the Cri-Kits holder (of course) and the blue pen.

1- On the Gypsy using George and Basic Shapes I sized a rectangle to 4.75x5.50. 
2- Inside that rectangle using the shift + 1 I started drawing lines in different sizes, from .25 w to .10 w and in different heights most at 90 degree angles until I thought it looked like a notebook page (a bit on the doodle side, not a perfect notebook page).
3- I continued by adding a layer 2 on the Gypsy and placing the rectangle exactly in the same x and y position as on layer 1,  
4- Using the Cri-Kits pen I cut/drew layer one.
5- When finished I clicked "return to design" without unloading my mat and proceeded to change Cri-Kits pen to cutting blade,
6- hit layer two and clicked cut (this time with blade)!

I used FolkArt paint to paint the chipboard letters.
The apples were cut using Stretch Your Imagination cartridge.
The hemp cord and embellisments are from Joann.
