Back to School Card

I have made a back to school card:



This card will be entered into the following challenges:

Crafty Creations - Back to school
http://craftycreationschallenges.blogspot.co.nz/2012/09/challenge-186-back-to-school.html
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch 170
http://sweetsketchwednesday.blogspot.co.nz/2012/09/sweet-september.html

And this is the sketch that I followed:


As you can see, I've substituted books for the flower embellishment. 

I have created a background from elements from Scrapbookscrapbook.com.  I collaged these together to make a background.  The frame is from cardstock.  The paper comes from Free Digital Scrapbook.  I'm not sure where the books came from.  The image is one from Cre8tive Hands.

Sorry, the comment on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog was a bit after I posted this.  I posted this at 5am before taking my son to swim training and then on to school.  Ran out of time to do the comment so it had to wait until now when I'm back home.


Update:   This card won a Top Three award (3rd) at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  It is my first Top 3 placing (not counting the time that I was the only entry in a challenge!) and I am so thrilled to have been chosen in the top 3.
