I {heart} School...

Since I missed my post last week for Pixie Dust Studio,
"Back to School" Challenge and the Blog Hop, I was feeling a little guilty.
I love to share and really do not like it when I miss a DT challenge.
Life and work just got a little overwhelming last week.
I am an Office Manager at an Elementary school and students came back last Thursday.
I was pulling some early mornings and late nights, just to get done what needed to get done.
So anyway, I wanted to finally share my card that I was going to post last Thursday.
There is still time to enter the challenge, submit a School related project and link it HERE
My Card Recipe:
For my card I used Paris Pixie, colored her with my Copic markers.
I eliminated the suitcases, and I thought her little red case looked like lunchbox.
The card is a 5" x 5" brown base, layered celery green and an apple patterned paper on top.
I cut an apple at 4" from my Cricut - Recess cartridge, sponging red and green ink around the shape.
I added black doodle lines and white hi-lights to the apple.
I {heart} School is from Close to My Heart inked with Vineberry ink, also from CTMH.
Finishing Touches:
I added a scalloped edge to the bottom of the card. Celery circle behind the apple.
Jute tied around the bottom edge and around the apple stem, using a wooden button.
Small banners added to the right side of the card and an adhesive pearl to the center of the flower.
Thanks for stopping by today.  I will be back on Wednesday with some new posts.
And on Thursday, I'll be back with another Pixie Dust Studio challenge.
Catch the Frenzy! - Karen
