Blogger Challenge - Back to School 8-17-12

Well I don't know about you but for me it seems as if summer has just flown by.  Haven't really done anything spectacular (no trips, vacations) just general everyday living but the days have past quickly and in just 2 short weeks Coleen heads back to school.  - I'm not sure if she's excited about that or not this year. 

With that in mind let's join Lisa and the other Blogger Challenge members as we celebrate the theme:  Back To School this week.  I meant to particpate in last weeks challenge but time go away from me so I made sure to get a card ready for this weeks challenge.

Here is my card:

I haven't bought many new stamps this years so had to make do with what I had on hand for this card.

I started with some patterned paper from Die Cuts with a View.  I cute the Alphabit stip off and added it to some Whisper White cs and punched the border down the side. 

Next I added the Apple piece from the paper pack and mounted it on Basic Black cs.

The Pencil is from a set by Mint Motif and the sentiment comes from MFT-Emma and her backpack set.

Card Stock: Real Red, Whisper White, Basic Black.  Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black.
Colored Pencils.
