First day of school card and some great news...

Just on Friday I learned that my daughter will start classes this coming Monday... yes! TOMORROW!!! I thought we still have one more week... anyways, Vicky will start first grade tomorrow and I feel so proud of her... so, I made this simple card to wish her the best for her school days :)

I used a CC designs stamp, called Honey Teacher, I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad.

I colored it with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils and cut it out, using some foami tape I placed it on a green mat cut with an elipse die cut (Sizzix) (Can you see the dimension?). I won this stamp maybe two years ago in a challenge but never used it before than today (!)

To tell you the truth, I make this card in a rush, when my daughter was playing some in my computer, but for that reason my card is very simple, I didn´t use any sketch and made a very simple card. I used a blue-greenish cardstock that has a micro embossing. Then I used for first time this ribbon, I think I won this ribbon in the first candy I won ever, more than two years ago (thank you, Jerosha!), as it´s a sticky ribbon and can´t do any bow I never used it before.

Then I was looking for a "school" embellishment, I was thinking in an apple button, or an apple brad or something with an apple, but as I didn´t find anything in my stash I used a red button and made a bow with a red mouline thread. As sentiment I used some stickers from a block with many alfabets and some school sentiments I've got a couple of month ago.

Although my card doesn´t have any pink color, hope my daughter will like it!!!
