Sisterhood September Challenge - Making the Grade

Our Sisterhood September challenge from Jeanette this month was to create a card using school supplies.  The card could also have a school theme although it didn't have too but the main challenge was to use school supplies to create the card. 

I used Cherry Cobbler, Baja Breeze and White cardstock.  My DP is from Cloud 9 Design.  My image of the little school girl is from SU's Greeting Card Kids.  My sentiment is from SU's Teeny Tiny Wishes and I used SU's new Dotted Scallop Ribbon punch.  I colored my image with my Copics.  For my school supplies...I used a brown lunch bag and embossed with my Cuttlebug Numbers embossing folder.  The flower is made using SU's Floral Fusion Sizzlits and cut out of paper from a Kindergarten writing tablet (remember the paper with the wide blue lines and the dotted line through the middle?) and glued together with a glue stick.  How's that for some school supplies?  LOL!! 

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend.

Debbie, this card is soooooooo cute! Ingenius idea to emboss the lunch sack! I would have never thought to do that. And I love that writing table flower! So pretty!

I can't wait to pet these cards when they get to my house!

Thank you for meeting my challenge and creating such beautiful cards!

I love that stamp set! I have it, and I'm getting it out today to make something. Love the little witch with pumpkin in the set, too! Your card is wonderful, DJ, I'm glad I read that you used the punch, because I was trying to decide whether you used the punch or the actual ribbon!! Love your card and the flower made from the tablet! Very creative and oh so cute!
