Back 2 School

Today my term as a Design Team member for Claudia & Company comes to an end.  I would like to thank Claudia for inviting me to be a part of the team for these past 6 months and will definitely miss working with her and the other girls.

Today I will be running out to pick up last minute school supplies and then heading over to the Middle School with the kids so Alicia can set up the locker shelves she and my husband made.  Tomorrow my kids are headed back to school...summer went by way to fast and I will really miss them being here all the time!  For my last project I decided to make  a back to school card.

Once again I used Puddle Jumper Lucy (what could be more perfect for a back to school card?), and paper pieced her dress and bag.  All coloring was done with copics.  The papers are from the Cosmo Cricket Odds & Ends Collection...definitely need to get some more of this!   I added rhinestones to the center of her bows, pearls to her dress in place of the buttons and colored over her shoes with a clear glaze pen.  The sentiment is from a Unity Stamp set.  I was so happy to find some polka dotted ribbon that was a close enough match that I could use it on here.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Fussy and Fancy Friday - Sketch
The Pink Elephant - Paper Piecing
The Pixie Cottage - Back to School
Allsorts - Back to School
Paper Play - Back to School
Sentimental Sunday - Back to School
Stamp Something - Back to School
