Paper Dolls Challenge #20

Quick post today.  Here's my card for Laurie's Paper Dolls Challenge. Her challenge is for us to make a project using a "school time" theme.

With four kids, I can always use a card for a teacher.  This is what I made.

I made the owl with the owl punch from Stampin' Up.  I also tried Dawn McVey's idea of stamping the ruler image from It's Official onto Summer Sunrise ribbon.  If you want to give this a try, use Staz On ink. When I tried dye and pigment inks, they bled.

I impressed the black panel and the yellow scallop rectangle with the Book Print plate. I distressed the black panel with my fingernails. To stamp "I Love School", I only inked the first words on the background stamp.

One of the reasons I bought the Pocket die is to be able to put little notes in it.  In this case, my daughter can write a short note for her teacher on it.

Well, that's it for now. Thanks for stopping by!
