School Days~ A Shape Card for a few Challenges :)

Hi Everyone!
I have a card to share with you that I made with a couple of challenge in mind.
School is back in session for some....we still have 4 more weeks left till school starts here but all the back to school prep going on, and the numerous challenges out there I though my card would be school geared.

The School House shape card is actually an SVG file that I have had but never used. Usually I make sure I know where it came from to give credit back to the designer but for some reason I have no clue :(

I do have to say that after watching a tutorial yesterday on coloring your own ribbon I had to give it a try and I LOVE how it comes out!!
I used white grosgrain ribbon and my copics. How fun is that!
Now I will always have matching ribbon!!

The little school children are from PDDU which is a cart I have not used in forever! I cut them out at 1.6" and cut their heads off (oh that sounded so bad!) Their faces were stamped with Peachy Keen Simple Sallies.
Since I cut them in white I colored their faces again with my copic marker to look skin toned.

And lastly the sentiment is from The Cutting Cafe~ School Years file.

So I am entering this into the following Challenges:
Scrapbookaholic by Abby~Challenge #11 Back to School
Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge~ Let's Face it Friday~ Shape Card
Paper Cutz Challenge~#103 School Days 1,2,3
Kimberli's Creations~  Using and Old Cart
Celebrate the Occasion~ #25 Back to School
My Sheri Crafts~ #66 Back to School
Queen of My Craftroom~ Back to School
Capture the Moment~ Make it Monday Copic Striped Ribbon

Hope you like my project for today. Thanks for stopping by and see you all tomorrow :)


  1. No way did you color that ribbon! How on earth did you get the lines so perfect and even?
    I can't remember whether or not you're on the DT for Celebrate the Occasion (it seems like you are...) anyway, in case you're not, you should enter this card at their challenge too, 'cause it's "back to school" also.
