It appears that there are several current 'back to school' challenges, so I decided to create a card that pays homage to this time of year!
In addition to the theme 'back to school', other common characteristics of the challenges include the colors red, yellow, and black.
Here is my creation:
I created a chalkboard of sorts by matting black cardstock with strips of kraft cardstock. I heat embossed the enlightening sentiment from the Shine from Within collection by Reverse Confetti with white embossing powder. The rest of the card is made up of elements that supplemented the 'school' theme: the red apples which were fussy cut from patterned paper, the date sticker, the yellow stripes in the patterned paper reminded me of pencils, and I used the tattered edge paper punch on the lined school paper.
I created my card to fit into the following great challenges: Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge, Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, and Can You Case It? challenge #83 (you can also click on each image to go to challenge blogs)
I LOVED these challenges!! Can't wait to play along with additional challenges at each site!!
Thanks for stopping by today!!
until next time....
