It's Classical Music Month so to celebrate I designed and made this pop up card using Graphic 45 paper, my chalks and my glimmer mist for the outside. The inside pop up rose and music is my own design.

Johnny Appleseed Day, September 26th

John Chapman, often called Johnny Appleseed, was an American pioneer nurseryman who introduced apple trees to large parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, including the northern counties of present day West Virginia. Wikipedia 
Born: September 26, 1774, Leominster, MA
Died: February 18, 1845, Fort Wayne, IN
 I decided to create a layout using my own designed svgs.
