Life Shared Card for Paper Players School Days Theme Challenge

Hi Friends!!

I made this card for my card club, and it was a big hit. I am in love with all the new Stampin' Up School Days themed paper and stamps. My friend Jenn got this paper for free at Convention this year... Lucky Girl!

The apple image is from one of the sheets of paper, I just used the 3/4 inch circle punch and then hot glued it onto a button. The bow is from some Wild Wasabi ribbon that retired a few years ago.

I am joining The Paper Players again this week!!!

I used a puppy on the button on this one, plus I changed the scallop circle to red, I just could not decide what color I like the most. lol

I used the fine tip of the marker to outline the image and then watercolored the inside.

I was taking some pictures during a thunder storm and caught this really cool picture of some lighting. It looks so close!! Yikes!!. I took this picture out my bedroom window. It was after 9pm at night, but look how bright it is outside. Amazing!!

It's like a double dose of back to school cuteness here, Shirley! Love it! I got that paper free at Convention, also and haven't gotten into it yet. This is great inspiration, for sure. Fantastic coloring on your image! Thanks for joining us TWICE this week at the Players! That is a great photo you caught of the lightening, too. Wow!
