You're an A+ in my book - Always Fun Challenges #73

Monday August 27, 2018
Welcome back to another fun challenge at
our theme is BACK TO SCHOOL
During the coffee lovers spring blog hop I won a gift cert. from any company I wanted.. Well living in Washington state I like to keep it local and Pretty Pink Posh is local.. So I spent my gift card and then some.. LOL.. How could you not.. This is one of the sets I ordered. I love these cute little kids and I think they can be used for more than school.  I started by finding some Basic Gray designer papers and cut them to fit my card. I then stamped the images and colored them with copics. as I was laying them out it looked a little plain so using Tech. Tues picture frame I die cut this out. I found some dark gray cardstock (for the chalk board) so stamped the PPP sentiment and embossed in white (to look like chalk) and added this to the top area. I added a sequin so it looked like a nail head. I also did the same with the back pack so it looks like it's hanging on the wall.  I am loving this cute card. oh look at the boys glasses.. how cute are those..  Cant wait to see what you come up with for your Back to school card.
