Simply Create Too Challenge 20 - Back To School

We have a new challenge starting over at Simply Create Too and although the kids in the UK have a few more weeks left of their summer break, the challenge theme this fortnight is:

Back To School

This is actually a graduation card that I was asked to make - Clair who graduated as a teacher actually looks like the Charmed Cards and Crafts digi which I've coloured with Promarkers!  I've had the Holly and Madison set of digi's for ages and I really should use them more!

I've used an acetate base for something a little different and added a blackboard type message underneath the Tiddly Inks blackboard.  Bunting I made and tied on with embroidery thread.  Gold star is table confetti (but rather chunky!) which I've had for ages.

And by all accounts, Clair loved the card!  Good luck with the challenge!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Penny's Paper Crafty:  Back To School
Use It Tuesday's:  All About School (star and images are horded supplies)
