School Days Are Here Again

Hello! A quick post today to share a card I created to enter into a couple of challenges. I thought it would be fun to make a card from the perspective of a homeschool family. We have a few more weeks before we start back up, but when we do... I wouldn't be surprised if I have a little ninja and kitty sitting at the table with me. My kids love to wear costumes and a school day is no different!

So these little kids from Unity Stamp Company's Little Tricks Halloween and Sweet Little Halloween stamp sets were perfect for my card idea. I started with a kraft card base and added a layer of fun notebook paper from Echo Park's Back to School paper pack along with a strip of random alphabet letters in some fun colors. I stamped the boy and girl on white card stock and stamped them again on the Back to School patterned papers. I colored in little bits of the images and then paper pieced the outfits. I adhered them to a wonky oval of kraft card stock that I popped up on the card. The sentiment was cut from the patterned papers as well and popped up on the card.

I'm entering this card at the Sketch Saturday Challenge blog...
