Back To School

 It's Monday which means there is a new challenge at Dream Valley Challenges ...

This week we are being sponsored by The Paper Shelter who has kindly provided images for us to use.

The theme this week is:


As I don't have any school aged children to make cards for, I used the image to make a card to congratulate someone on doing well at school - this could be used for passing an exam/graduation etc.

As always the design team have come up with some inspiration to get your creative juices flowing - here's my card:

What I used:

Image - The Paper Shelter

Kraft base and paper

Iron floor embossing folder

Patterned papers, greeting and certificate - Making Cards magazine

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:

Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #164 - anything goes

C.R.A.F.T Challenge #609 - back to school

Pammie's Inky Pinkies #2134 - anything goes

Crafting Happiness #110 - anything goes

Make The Cards Challenge #29 - back to school

So have a pop over at the Dream Valley Challenge Blog to see some more lovely inspiration from my teamies on the design team and have a chance at winning a prize.

Thanks for visiting
