Back to School

Firstly, I'd like to apologise for the look of my blog. Blogger decided to kidnap my beautiful background and won't let me have it back. I have neither the time nor inclination to sort it just now, so it's turned into a waiting game. Anyway, I'm pleased to say that .........

We have a new challenge this month at Emma's Cards UK. The theme for Challenge #8 is very topical  as it's "Back to School". Your entry can be any crafty make on this theme, whether it's a card, scrapbook layout or a 3D creation. For a link to the full set of rules and to enter see our challenge page at Emma's Cards UK.

Our sponsor for this challenge is the fabulous IndigoBlu.
 
And this is the wonderful prize
 
 
On to my DT card; I started with an 8"x8" card blank and covered the front with a dark grey pearlescent card and then layered with green card, both from Kanban. I added some writing in white pen to break it up. The blackboards are from the Wine Buffs CD and I added the text in MCS.


The boy is from Polkadoodles Pretty Tuff CD as are the books and the backpack. I tiled and altered the colour of the books in MCS and coloured the boy and the backpack with Promarkers. The clock is from an MCS CD.


This is a great challenge with a fabulous prize, so if you need any more inspiration, pop along to Emma's Cards UK to see all the other wonderful DT cards. We can't wait to see your entries.

  1. What a terrific card, Andree. I love the way you have pulled items from different sources and brought them into one cohesive unit. I love your colouring of the image and the blackboard is great. So sorry about your background but I think you are right to play a waiting game as sometimes things reappear. I hope it does come back. Vee xx
