Heading Back to School


I guess just about everyone will be back to school after Labor Day, if not already. So, the Friends of Speedy TV challenge #36 is to make a back to school card.

I am using a Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps, A Heinrich Co. set call Lesson Learned. The small apples were on a desk image in the set and I just colored, cut out, and popped those on my card. The sentiments are on a  notebook paper embossing folder by The Paper Studio.

The designer paper is unknown. Ink used is Memento Bamboo Leaves and Potter's Clay.

Now, for the prize up for grabs this week:

If you play along with us this week, maybe you will be the lucky winner of this set, I'm in Stitches. So, it's time to get stampin' and show us your creation.

Benz,
Very, very cute card. I hadn't thought of cutting out that little applie, but it certainly looks adorable. And, I love that you stamped on lined notebook paper - wonderful card.
