The Outlawz Greetings Card Back to School Challenge

Well, it's Monday again, but it surely doesn't feel like it! Gary is home for Labor Day, and we won't get any mail. So it feels a bit like a second Sunday. Anyway, it's time for another Outlawz Greetings Card challenge. This week we want to see what you create with a Back to School theme.

I am really late getting this posted, but there were extenuating circumstances. Like a really, really full weekend with my hubby. You know, going out to eat, going to baseball games, Fantasy Football drafts, etc. A really full and fun weekend with him. So there is that.

OK, for today's card I chose two Tiddly Inks images that I love. One is my background, Blackboard, and the other is the sweet Schoolgirl. I needed to do a CAS card really fast, so I combined these with a sentiment and voila! Done!

I decided to enter a CAS challenge with this card:

A Creative Romance CAS Challenge

I did use Stampin' Up CS for my card base and sentiment. I printed Schoolgirl on MICBC and colored her with my Copic and Twin Touch Brush markers:

Skin: E000, TTR131, TTR139, TTYR133
Hair: E11, E13, E15, E18
Skirt/Bow: Y21, Y23, Y26, Y28
Blouse/Socks: B21, B23, B26
Books: E41, E43, E44, BG93, BG96, BG99, C2, C4, C6

So check out the inspiration by my talented teamies here. And then get your creative hats on and join us. Have a wonderful week!
