September Card Challenge is Up

Happy September! You know what the first of the month brings... a new card challenge. I have a new one up at Scrapping the Moments. They had a blog hop with the theme being "Back to School." So make a card for that special kid or youth wishing them a great year as they get back to school. Come on over to see more information about the challenge.

Also, we have lots of other fun challenges over at Scrapping The Moments. Our design team produces some amazing work each month.

Here is the card I made for this challenge. I had a little hard time making a card for a child but I had fun and stretched my skills. This is the first card I ever made for a little girl and the first card I made using a stamped and colored image. Plus, this was the first time I used a 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 size card. So I was really getting out of the box. You should try it out.

Used yellow cs, Echo Park pp, yellow ribbon, red flowers, owl stamp, colored pencils and pop dots on the owl.

So, join us in making cards for those special children and youth in your world. They will be so surprised to receive a "Back to School" card from you. Thanks for looking!
