Fussy and Fancy.....Back to School

Hi Susan here....

It is that time again, we are half way through the challenge over at Fussy and Fancy so Group B has the chance to give you all some more inspiration so that you can decide to come and join us. The ongoing challenge theme is -
'Back to School'

For full details of the challenge and to see all the inspirational work from Group A and B take a look over at Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog.

Now onto my card....

My backing paper is all from my stash. I used bright bold colours because it is a card for a child, and bright colours are fun for kids cards....
All the fancy school buttons are from our local market, we have had them in our stash for ages.
I used several pieces of bright coloured card to paper weave, I liked this effect. It's a simple technique that even children do in school when they are making things to bring home for their Mums.

This gorgeous image is from Bugaboo and I have used promarkers to colour and shade. I cut the image out and then stuck it onto a base green card that I trimmed to the shape of the image.

This is the inside of the card, showing the card school ABC border, this comes in 12 inch strips with a fabulous curved edge and is great for cutting out the odd letter as I did for the front of my card. The sentiment I used on the inside has been designed by Ann Vento and is available from Raindrop Echo Designs.
