cas-ual fridays 68

Yey for Friday! Of course that means it's time for a new CAS-ual Fridays challenge :) This week we want to see your back to school projects. Our sponsor is Pretty Paper Studio with a prize of 100 dirhams GC (equates to about $26) :)

Before I get to my card, I've got one more thing to share and that is that we have a new DT member! Please give a wonderful CAS-ual Fridays welcome to the amazing Piali Biswas!

Now onto my card which was inspired by the new Lawn Fawn dewey decimal papers! There's a lovely graphic paper in the set with yellow and kraft apples. I've ordered the 6x6 paper pad but it's not here yet :( However, it got me thinking about a school themed card in non traditional colours. I thought this might appeal more to an older child to give to their teacher.

I used Studio Calico's abroad collection 6x6 paper pad - I feel their papers are always right on trend. I die cut 3 apples from different papers and mounted them with dimensionals over a strip of paper from the same pad which I'd stamped with the "TeAcHeR" from Papertrey Ink's Teacher's Apple set. The "thank you" above the apples came from the same set.

I'm also going to pop this card over to Moxie Fab for their repetition challenge :)

Oh, when my 2 favorite things come Studio Calico and Debby Hughes designs, I am a happy girl. There isn't a single thing in this design that I don't find drop dead wonderful. Off to PIN it!

Well it certainly appeals to me, Debby! In fact, it would make it much less painful to get back into the routine of school again if I received beautiful cards like this!
