PALS Back to School!

 HI there... can you believe I'm posting again! I had long spans of posting nothing and then Wham! Two posts in two days! I'm also going to use this card for Two challenges. The Pals Paper Arts color challenge using Real Red, Marina Mist and Summer Starfruit.
The second challenge is for The Paper Players theme challenge "Back to School RULES"! How Fun.
This card came easy to me as I needed something to send a check to my grand kids for school supplies so the timing for this challenge worked out perfectly! It will be in the mail tomorrow. Here's my card. 
This card uses the colors for the PALS challenge and two older stamp sets; "Recess" and "First Day". 
I colored the images with blender pens and ink. I stamped some background images on the card base, added a strip of Polka Dot Parade DSP, then popped up the focal point. 
I added the A+ using dimensionals and the new scalloped circle punch and the older punch of the same. 
Here's a peek at the inside using the "Letter It" alphabet set in the three challenge colors. 
I think it's perfect to send a little sumpin' sumpin' for my little kiddies!

Well that's it for now. It sure is fun playing the challenges; takes all the guess work out of what to make. 

Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment to let me know what you think!

Oh I can here the kids squealing now, they're gonna love your card. Nice job with some cutie images, like the hop-scotch in the background and the way you edged the focal frame with the same color AND of course it's an A+.

Awww, Diane! This is one stamp set I completely regret not getting. How cute is your card?? And so perfect for back to school! I bet your grandkids are going to be excited. Maybe not about going back to school but about buying all of those spankin' new school supplies. That was always my favorite part...new clothes and new folders! Haha! Thanks for joining us at the Paper Players this week! :)

Aww, Diane, this is so cute! Love all the little stamping bits--the abcs on the front, the hopscoth and the apples on the inside. Great playground scene too with all those kiddos! So glad you joined my back to school challenge this week! ((hugs))
