MFT WSC Back to School Blues!

Hello---Time for another MFT Wednesday Stamp Club challenge. This week's theme is Back to School Blues! Create a project featuring something related to going back to school and use something blue. (Sorry about the dark photo--we are experiencing torrential rain from the hurricane off the coast and there is no sunlight to be found these days.)I used the Pure Innocence set Are we There Yet? for this card. (I transformed her into a school girl by using solid colors, khaki pants and by transforming her flip flops into shoes.) The quote is from Clearly Sentimental about Books (coming soon to MFT!). It is one of my favorite Dr. Seuss quotes! The blue is the frame around the sentiment. (Confession: I forgot about the blue part of this challenge and was relieved that there was a bit of blue on this card :)

Materials used: Stamps-Are We There Yet?, Clearly Sentimental about Books (My Favorite Things);Copic markers; Memento tuxedo black ink; Cardstock- ivory (Gina K Designs); Designer paper-Schoolhouse: No 2 Pencil, Schoolhouse: Chalkboard (October Afternoon); stickers-Report Card shape stickers (October Afternoon); button; sewing machine.

What an adorable card. Love the colors (including the blue! LOL). And the alphabet. Oh, yes, and the row of apples. In other words, I love everything about this card.
