Back To School….

It’s hard to believe that the summer is almost over and the kids are going back to school soon.  This cute card will be sent to a child just starting Kindergarten.  It will also be entered into the ADFD Challenge Blog, which asked for a card made with “School Paper.”

The Apple image is by A Day For Daisies, which just happens to be one of my favorite digital stores. This cute image can be found there, but please check out her other lovely images of women, children, mermaids, animals, fantasy themes, etc. The images just seem to “flow” from her pen.

The patterned paper is called “School Days” and is an “Oldie” by Provo Craft and dated 1995. The blue and white paper on the corners was cut from a sheet of matching paper called “School Days Quilt.” The ruler ribbon is from JoAnns and the sticker was in my stash.

I colored the image with my Copic Markers. The sentiment is typed on my computer and cut with a Spellbinders Die, and I also used a Gina Marie Die called “Stitched Hexagon.” The apple is fussy-cut and the worm and leaves are 3-D.  I used foam dots for this.
