Back to School Card

It's really hard to believe that it's time for school to start. My nieces start tomorrow. I'm pretty sure they are ready to go back. Summer is fun but it can be really boring at home. There are a lot of back to school card challenges going on. To participate I made this Back to School Card for my youngest niece. The cute sock monkey image is by Bugaboo digital stamps. I colored the image with my Copic markers and made the sentiment on the computer. The patterned papers are from the Anthologie 6 x 6 collection by We R Memory Keepers and I used kraft card stock for the base. I sponged antique linen distress ink around the image and sentiment panels and added three Candy Dots by Stampin' Up! for the finishing touch. When I was making the sentiment, I wondered if they even use the word arithmetic anymore? I figured if my niece doesn't know the meaning, then it's a good learning moment. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful evening and a pleasant tomorrow!

My Back to School Card is entered into the following challenges:


  1. Love this cute chappie. Great colours and layout. I spotted you over on MIM and came for a closer look and I am so glad that I did.


  2. lol! You know, I'm not sure they DO say arithmetic any more! I hadn't really thought about it until you mentioned it.
    I think I might be in love with the sock monkey :)

  3. Love the image and background paper . Thanks for sharing on Make it Monday
