MFTWSC211 & NBUS - Thank-you for School with Class Act

Another weekly sketch over at MFT Card Challenges MFTWSC211 which was so fun to work with plus another chance for me to use up some NBUS (Never Before Used Stuff) that I've had in my stash but just now pulled out which is this cute stamp set called: Class Act along with this stencil.

Here is my card:
This is such a cute stamp set and perfect for a school theme with pencils, school bus, and cute sentiments. Here I started with the Jumbled Letters stencil and used some texture paste on black card stock and set it aside to dry. Cut out two oval circles and stamped the white card stock with the Writing Tablet background set using Sno Cone ink.

For the top and bottom strips, I used Wild Cherry card stock along with Fine Check background stamp. Colored this cute little girl and pencils with my Copic markers and used a Fishtail Flag in Berrylicious across underneath her. Lastly popped her up along with the pencils using foam mount and added some enamel dots.

Again, don't forget to stop over at the challenge sites and see all the wonderful inspiration.
