Digi Haven's challenge this time was a real challenge for me! This challenge is called "Back to School". We are to find a free digital image that is "forever free" or is "free" as long as the challenge is in process.
I have never sent or received any cards for school. I wanted to participate but I really had to think about it. There is, of course (as always) some great inspiration provided by the DT! One of those is a good friend of mine. She had mentioned that she had gotten her free digital image from Elizabeth O. Dulemba. Elizabeth has many GREAT digitals for coloring!
I decided to use "Back to school Squirrel".
The papers are from We R Memory Keepers "Show & Tell" Collection". I had these papers left over from a mini-album class I did at my LSS Cat's Creations Scrapbooks a year or two ago.
These are the copic markers I used on the image.
I wasn't sure how the card was going to come together but once I found the papers I got excited! Then I was trying to figure out what I was going to do for a sentiment. Hmmm...I was stumped again. A sentiment came to mind but I wasn't sure how I was going to put it on the card. I have some Just Rite very small alphabet stamps I could use but I really didn't want to go to that much trouble. Then I remember I had very small sticker words thanks to Authentique's stickers they include with their collections! It worked! The only word I didn't have was "your". If you look close you can see where I spliced together to sticker words to get the one I wanted!
Maybe not the prettiest or cutest card I ever made but I'm pleased with my final result! Hope you are too! Now to figure out who will be the recipient of this card!
Have a good one!
