Challenge #215 - "Back to School" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well as its only a couple of weeks left of the Childrens Summer Holiday I thought it was time to get those cards created for the little ones who are starting School and the older children going on to either a new Secondary School or Colleges and have chosen the theme "Back to School".
As always our sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website.

And as always this comes with the rule that you must have used one of their products on your card or project, but even if you havent used you will still be eligible for 3 digi images of your own choice, so you really cannot loose can you. You will find lots of Images, Papers and Printables on their website here "The Paper Shelter" and the money exchange is extremely good so you will find they very reasonable to buy, I hope you enjoy your browse on their website.
And now for my own Card

The Image I have used is "Vintage Teacher" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens. I then cut her out with my rotatrim and mounted her onto a piece of dark brown card, the sentiment is one I created on my computer and then printed it out and mounted it in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of brown card and the backing papers I have used for this card is also from the "Vintage Teacher" you will find it here with the Image.
I then used a piece of note paper which was then torn and inked to distress it, and this was placed on top of the first mount. I then placed my mounted image in the center with the sentiment below towards the right. The final flourish are the ABC buttons and 123 ones as well.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Back to School" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
