Back to School

Lots of challenges out there for Back to School cards so I finally broke down and made one using this super cute image from Inktegrity! Here's a list of the challenges I used:
Corrosive Challenge: Back to School
Cuttlebug Challenge: Back to School
Creative Belli Blog: Back to School
Unscripted Sketches: Sketch
Spoonful of Sugar: distressing somewhere on the card (sanded the blue cardstock)
Die Cuts R Us: Use the negative image (letters on my card)
Just Buggin: Something that represents serenity (back to kids fighting=serene! :) )
If the Shoe Fits: dots (swiss dot embossing folder)
Pals Paper Arts: colors Brocade Blue, Curry and Ruby
Cute Card Thursday: Back to School
Paper Play Challenge: Use three different letter leftovers or three different fonts (a is from Don Juan, b is from Alphalicious and c is from Jasmine)
And Momiji..when I put the stickers on the bottom I was laughing at the thought of those old scrapbooks! :)
