Back to School ...

My first "back to school" project.  The children in our Greeting Card Kids set are so precious, they just had to have be the center of attention.  I stamped them with Elegant Eggplant ink on Whisper White cardstock.  This time I decided not to add color to my image.

The schoolhouse is made of chipboard cut in the desired shapes.  I covered it with ModPodge and layered it with our "oh so sparkly" Fine Cosmo Glitter (Orchid).  The flower is crocheted white from Fleurettes II.
The postal note says "Important Message ... please return" - it's from a retired stamp set.  The orchid ribbon is retired SU grosgrain and the button was picked up somewhere along the way.  The pearls are new to our catalog this year and I love them.  They are self-adhesive and come in different sizes.

The background is paper from our Newsprint collection.  I layered that onto Soft Suede with my card base made from Crumb Cake.  My orchid and celery papers are scraps from the drawer. 

Inspiration was found at these blog challenges ... be sure to visit each and leave some love.
