Back to School

I used to love the summer hols when my girls were younger -
having them at home
and making up lots of fun things to do.
I know it's not everyone's idea of bliss though -
so hang on in there if you are starting to feel frazzled -
only another 4 weeks to go... lol**

The thing I like about challenges, is that they make you try something different
and push you out of your comfort zone.
This card certainly did that, I'm not really sure about using the bright colours,
but that was the challenge over at Allsorts
'Red, Blue & Yellow'
I also used the great sketch by Emma at
Sketch Saturday
and followed Stampin' for the Weekend's
'Back to School' challenge.

I used this cute Digital Delights stamp of the school bus.
I wanted to make the characters look like they were sat in the bus,
so I cut out an extra bus layer and used foam pads to 3D it.

Stamp - Digital Delights School Bus & Sentiment, coloured with Copics.
Design Paper - Papermania Basics - Vibrant.
Buttons from my stash.
