Back to School Birthday

My roommate’s cousin is a school teacher, and September not only marks Back to School, but her birthday as well. I always like making my cards personal, if possible, so I thought a student and blackboard was perfect for both events. Happy Birthday Deb.

To make this card I used MFT - CS Birthday Chalkboard Greetings, Die-namics Chalkboard Frame Builder, and Pure Innocence It’s a Sign. I coloured the little girl with Copics and paper pieced her dress, used the blackboard technique for the sentiment, and built the chalkboard frame after stamping it with Hero Arts – Woodgrain background stamp.

BIRTHDAY BOARDI entered this card into Cute Card Thursday – Back to School, Crafty Sentiments Designs Challenge Blog –  Back to School and Lexi’s Creations –  Back to School

UPDATE:  My card was selected as the winning entry at Cute Card Challenge.
