Card Concept #18: Back to School
Welcome to the Card Concept Challenge #18, a theme challenge this week and very timely for the first week of September. Back to School is our theme and as my daughter is a brand new first time teacher this year, I knew my card would be something I can give to her to cheer her on and encourage her as she begins her teaching career. Here's the picture we had to work with along with the Back to School theme:
Isn't that the cutest little pencil? I used a large alphabet embossing folder and a clipboard cut file along with a traditional apple and paperclip. The notebook paper is a die cut from Papertrey Ink as is the cute sentiment from Vintage Picnic. I am going to tuck this card into her plan book she brings home every night and hope that she doesn't find it until she opens it up at work. It makes me so proud to see her accomplish the goal she worked so hard to achieve.
Ready to make a school themed card of your own? You have two weeks to play along with the Card Concept...the contest ends on Monday, September 18th at noon, PST. I hope to see your card in our gallery very soon!
