Simon Says..........Back to School!

wed-newchallenge-header

Wednesday again, and we're starting another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

Our theme this week is Back to School, and the design team are using products from My Favorite Things, a company with so many wonderful stamps, inks, dies, and stencils!  Here's my first card, using one of their Pure Innocence images, called Book in Hand.

These sweet little girls are always fun to paper-piece; I just colored in her skin and hair with markers and used papers from Simple Stories Smarty Pants for her outfit and the background of my card.  This pad has some great patterns, both large and small, perfect for paper-piecing and backgrounds.  I added some twine and a wooden star at the top for some dimension.

And while I was at it, I pulled out another Pure Innocence image that I got last year for this challenge and used the same Smarty Pants papers, along with a brand spankin' new Bella Blvd. Hello Autumn dp that I recently won (the leafy green background).  This one gives a nice autumn feel with these colors.
