Bellariffic Friday - Back to School

Aaaah, a long weekend and an interesting take on this week's Bellariffic Friday theme of "Back to School"!  I don't have any Stamping Bella images that typically makes one think of school so I thought "outside the box" and made a card for all the Mums out there who are sending their children back to school.  I envision them that first morning with their children back in school.....sitting quietly in their house with a nice cup of coffee or tea...and no-one clamoring for their attention,or something to do or something to eat!

I stamped Lattebella in Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured her with copics.

The layout is one of my "go to" sketches - easy and simple.  I used SU Sahara Sand and So Saffron paired with a pattern paper from MME Miss Caroline Dolled Up.  I layered her onto a second oval nestie and added a button bow in SU Regal Rose.  The embossing folder is swiss dots - another "go to" of mine.  I used a couple of Atyou Spica pens for a touch of sparkle and a tiny twinkle in her hair elastic finished her off. 

Have a great long weekend!

This is a delightful back to school card!!! Definitely the way I'd like to spend the first day of school, or any day for that matter.

Leslie this is a perfect card for all the Mom's out there. Brilliant take on the theme. The ribbon & bow just pop off the card
