Back to School

To make this card I followed the Lili of the Valley challenge #35; this sketch:

I really enjoyed this sketch! I definitely wouldn't have come up with this exact layout without the sketch.

I also participated in the recipe challenge they have at Cupcake Craft Challenge this week. They wanted everyone to use 3 buttons, 2 papers (I used two patterned pieces in my card), and 1 ribbon. That was a lot of fun. I don't think I would have added the 3rd button near the sentiment without this challenge!

The 3rd challenge I participated in was over at Cute Card Thursday. Their challenge of the week was the "Back to School" theme. I was glad to have the motivation to try a "Back to School" card. Without the challenge I may have never made a card for that! It caused me to use paper I may never have used otherwise, too, which was fun. :)

A Spoon Full of Sugar blog is hosting a "distressing" challenge this week, so I inked the edges of all the papers except the black to participate in this challenge! It's a lot of fun challenging myself to incorporate so many challenge into one card! :)

Thanks for looking!
