First Day At School - Elliot

There are a few of my friends who have kids starting school this September so I've made them all a little card to celebrate!  The first one is for Elliot:

I've used a Jellypark image, coloured with Promarkers and added with foam pads for depth.  The sentiment is also Jellypark - both no longer available.

Papers are A to Z by Samantha Walker - I've been creative with the borders as I'm using a lot of left overs!  Charms are from my stash along with the waxed cord.  And to finish, I've added a running stitch with a black fine liner pen around the edge of the card.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Freshly Made Sketches:  Sketch followed
Let's Colour Linky Party:  Anything Goes
Send A Smile 4 Kids:  Anything Goes
The Pencil Case:  Anything Goes
