Craftin' Desert Divas - Back To School Linky Party

Happy Monday!!!
Welcome to another

The theme for this Linky Party is:
Back To School!!!

Our Sponsors are:
One Stamp Set

$10 Discount Code

Prize Pack

My Project:

How many of you know some kids that are just dreading
going back to school and have the "Backpack Blues"?
Well, I made this card with all those kids in mind :)
especially my 12 year old niece!

This fun sentiment comes from Craftin' Desert Divas
School Zone Stamp Set

You can purchase this set HERE.

The DT was so lucky to have some amazing products to
use from Clearsnap - a colorful ColorBox ink pad and some daubers.
I'm totally converted to the daubers!

So I inked around the edges of my base card and my blue pattern papers
with the fabulous blue ink from ColorBox.

I used the Recess Cartridge for the backpack.
LOVE this cut!!!

I also used paper from DCWV Grade School paper stack
and some other scraps in my stash.

The twine is Trendy Twine Blueberry - LOVE!
And the bling is from Darice (JoAnn's)

Here is the inside:
I kept it super simple, but inked around the edges of
the white cardstock mat and pattern papers with the
same blue ink.
Seriously, the daubers are FABULOUS!!!

I hope that you will join us for the linky party

Here is a video showing how my card came together:
