First Day of School

Here's a card I made using one of the new stamps just released at Lili of the Valley, 'Back to School Girl'. Sweet! As soon as I saw her, I knew exactly which papers I was going to use. These are long retired papers from Cosmo Cricket, 'Gretel' collection. The kit included a bunch of die cut letters, which I knew would be perfect for a First Day of School card. 
I decided to make an easel card so I could use the huge letters and still have room for a sentiment.

I colored the image with my colored pencils and cut the whole thing out so I could layer it onto a piece of lined paper. I used one of the larger die cuts from the kit and just cut the lines out with PTI's notebook paper die. 

A little zig zag stitching around the edges, some Stickles on the letters, a pretty bow and there ya go!

Hope you like it, thanks for visiting me!
