Back to School with Pink Gem

It's that time of year again, the children go back to school on Monday and the house is full of backpacks, binders and school supplies.
So I thought it only fitting to bring out a school theme stamp for a card!

Challenges:

Gem of a Challenge - Sketch
Kah Wink E Dink - Back To School
Frosted Designs - Back To School
Stampin Royalty - School Days
Delightful Challenges - Back to School (with Primary Colors)
Theme Thursday - Children
Charisma - Die Cuts
One Stitch At A Time - Pack a Punch
Character Cafe - Glaze
Incy Wincy - Yellow
Lexi's - Yellow and Orange
Gingersnaps - Yellow, Orange and Red



Card Recipe:
Image - School Girl Chloe by Pink Gem Designs
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - DCWV
Border Punch - Fiskars Apron Lace
Sentiment - Doodlebug
Brads - Spare Parts
Corners - KI Memories
Die Cut - Spellbinders





I added Glossy Accents to her apple and her shoes as I can remember always having a shiny new pair of shoes to start school with (no sneakers/tennis shoes/converse in those days! LOL)
I hope you like her and that all the little ones, and not so little ones have a wonderful transition back to school from the long Summer break.
