Apple Accordion Card

This card started with a cut file from the Silhouette Design Store. I chose some pearlescent red cardstock to use for the card base. Then I sized the card and and cut it out with my Silhouette Portrait. I then cut out the green stems and adhered them with glue tape.
Here's the card base:
Then I chose some school-themed digi stamps from Miss Kate Cuttables (Did you know she posts a new freebie every day? The freebies include SVG cutting files along with the .png and .jpeg files.) and sized them to fit inside the smaller apple cut file that came with the apple accordion card cut file. I cut those out along with a darling apple paper clip cut file on my Silhouette and then narrowed it down to which 5 images I wanted to use on the card.
I adhered the images with foam squares so they pop up a bit from the apple card base.
I'm entering it into the following challenges:
All sorts Challenge: Lots of layers (I'm hoping my accordion "layers" count!)
