Anything but a Card challenge at...

Tammy's Scrapin' Corner with Challenge #55 - Anything but a Card
I decided to make a little note pad cover, using the Pen Pal Mouse from Meljen's
I have a lot of these little golf pencils left over from a previous project from many years ago
They are perfect for this type of project.
My note pad measures 3-1/2" x 5"
I covered the front on the pad with Aqua cardstock, cut at 3-1/2" x 6, adhere the extra 1" at the back
I used the Cricut - Elegant Edges pg. 37 to cut the <Stamp-s> at 3-1/2" on red cardstock.
Printed and cut my Pen Pal Mouse image into a 3" x 3" square
Colored the image using the following Copic markers:
BG10, C-1, C-5, E02, E31, E33, R00, R20, R22, R27, Y02, Y08, Y17
I created a yellow 1-1/2" square banner and used old letter stickers to spell out NOTES
I also cut a strip of yellow cardstock to hold my pencil
Adhere this strip to the back of the pad and then to the front prior to attaching the image over the top
Finishing touch - added a gingham ribbon and bow
We have 3 wonderful sponsors this week

I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
