Paper Playtime Challenge #11 - School Days


This week at Paper Playtime Challenge their weekly challenge is titled School Days. You can interpret the challenge anyway you want. This week we have a sponsor, The Stamping Boutique! Be sure to enter in the challenge to win the prize given by The Stamping Boutique!!! To see the other entries and to enter yourself go HERE.


I made the card for my Aunt who is a teacher. It is to wish her good luck in the upcoming school year. The images I used are from the Stamping Boutique. I love 'em! The background paper and pencil you can get HERE then do a search for school and a search for pencil. I printed the background off and cut it out in an angle. I then used Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress ink on the white paper to give it a more worn look. The pencil I colored in w/ SU! markers and pop dotted it off the paper. I used PTI paper.

My niece helped me w/ the idea of this card. She suggested I put the ribbon, also from PTI, at an angle like the paper. Never have done that before, turned out pretty good. :) I was then trying to decide how to write out Good Luck. I hate my handwriting and so my niece asked if I had any alphabet stamps. I almost reverted to my tween years and hit my head and said 'Duh!'. :) The alphabet stamps I used are from Sassafras Lass Mini Hombre stamp set.

~ Thanks for looking and make sure you head over to Paper Playtime Challenge to participate!
