Fussy and Fancy #18!

The current challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Blog is BACK TO SCHOOL!  My sons went back to college three weekends ago, so we have the ol' empty nest thing going on in my house these days :(


Our sponsor for this challenge is Stitchy Bear Stamps who provided the DT some of their adorable images.  I chose this sweet little girl who is getting ready by ironing her outfit for the first day of school!!

Hop on over to the F&F Challenge Blog to be inspired by my DT sister's gorgeous designs -- half the team posted last Friday, the second half of the team posted this Friday -- and then give this fun 'Back to School' challenge theme a try.  I can't wait to see your designs!

Challenges for this card:

Fussy & Fancy #18 - back to school
The Shabby Tea Room #25 - Old meets new
Our Creative Corner #29 - sketch
Create for Cards - one word sentiment
Simon Says Stamp & Show - layers
There She Goes #70 - 1 DSP, 2 CS's, 3 embellies
Really Reasonable Ribbons - flowers & ribbon
The Pink Elephant #82 - mostly white
The Creative Cottage #22 - celebrations
Crafty Creations #83 - white + one (besides my neutrals, my + one is Safforon)
Color Throwdown #108 - kraft, saffron, chocolate chip
Die Cut Dreams #63 - soft vintage
