The Paper Players #107 Theme Challenge

Good day folks!  We're all about Back to School RULES this week over at the Paper Players - and let me just say....after the week I've had with my kiddos, I'm SO terribly ready for school to start.  Gosh - I could really tell there was a full moon this week and it must have had some very potent power.

Here's the card I created for this weeks challenge:

I'm not gonna lie - I was completely inspired by the Headliner card last week - from Anni.  Gosh, her card just inspired me all around.  I used her card more as a sketch than anything, and of course changed some things up.  I loved Anni's card and was going to be quite disappointed if mine wasn't as good.  In the end tho - I'm very happy with my results.  I was thrilled with the addition of the linen thread and button.  It added just the right elements.  And, of course, working with the Storytime DSP  - you can't go wrong.  Can you believe it, there is hardly any stamping on this card - just the sentiment.  That cute little girl I punched right out of the Storytime DSP.  Easy Peasy!

Go on now - go see what the rest of the splendid design team came up with!
