Hi friends! Lisa E. is the hostess this week for the Photo Week challenge at Just Us Girls. She chose this cute back to school photo.
I'm a retired teacher and have no children going back to school, so I chose to use the colors in the photo instead. (Getting off topic here, but who loves to look at all the new school supplies every year in the stores? Me, me, me! I don't know what it is about new school supplies, but I just love them!) Back to the card. I'm in a fall mood and chose this wreath stencil to use with the colors in the photo. I wanted the one leaf to look more red, but it looks brown-ish. I did use yellow ink and red over it. After stenciling, I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle. Then I stamped and die cut the sentiment and die cut it two more times to stack for dimension. The secondary sentiment was stamped below it. I added crystal baubles for shimmer and mounted this panel on a teal card stock. Can't wait for cooler fall weather (and Buffalo Bills football, which I'm watching now)!
