Stampin’ Up! Back to School

My card today is inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

This past Thursday my kiddos started back to school.  I always like to make a card for their lunch box telling them how proud I am of them and encouraging them in the new year ahead.  If you go down a bit on my Facebook page, you can see this years’ cards.

I created today’s card with the idea of slipping them in their lunches maybe in about a month or so, you know when homework is in full swing, the novelty of a new year is wearing off, and the reality of tests and quizzes is setting in.

Today’s card’s base is Thick Whisper White cardstock which I covered with a pattern from the Pick a Pattern DSP.  I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Flirty Flamingo cardstock and adhered that to the card.

Using the Layering Circles Framelits, I cut out another pattern from the Pick a Pattern DSP and matted it on a scalloped Flirty Flamingo circle.

I then used the Bunch of Banners Framelits to cut out yet another pattern from the Pick a Pattern DSP.  My sentiment comes from the Watts of Occasions stamp set and I thought it fit my card perfectly.  I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink and cut them apart and adhered them to the card.
