Back to School

One down three to go _____.   I suddenly realised it was just a little over a week till the schools went back – and given that the post can take a while to get from France to the UK, I needed to make cards for our grandchildren rather quickly.  This is the first of these cards.   It’s for my elder granddaughter, and as her uniform will be red and grey I thought the colours were appropriate.   She is not only going from the Infants into the Juniors – but changing schools as well – which she is very excited about.

I used an image from TPS – Back to School – and I coloured it with Promarkers and Copics. The papers are from Nitwits Bear Academy and I cut the lined paper with a die from          Marianne Designs.  The ribbon is from my stash, the stars were cut with a punch and the sentiment is computer generated.


 I would like to enter my card into these challenges –
