I Love School

Hi Everyone!

How are ya? Busy? I'm still enjoying my time off and loving every second of it! I came across a blog Seize the Sketch and have fallen in love with their sketches. The designers are pretty fabulous too! I used their sketch to create my card.
So here is my card for a few bloggy challenges.

My card starts with the sketch of course
Great sketch huh?

I used an apple cut from Cricut Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge
A bunch of scraps and an old DCWV paper pad
Gold sequins
Rick Rack Die - Scrappy Mom Stamps

This is perfect and lovely, Shelly! I just played with this sketch and made a teacher card too on Thursday. Perhaps I should post mine :)

Your gingham apple is fabulous and I love the polka dot banner, of course. And the gold sequins is yummy. I am addicted to sequins :)
