Simon Says Stamp September Kit, Card #4

Back to School

This months kit is way outside my style, but just goes to show you that it’s still fun!  I used the Retro Sketch challenge as a design start and added a piece of vellum because I didn’t want to cover up the “school or book” theme.  I’m not thrilled with the embossing powder, which is in Verdigris.  The flag is a My Favorite Things die, and the “note paper” die is an old Stampin’ Up punch.

  1. WOW Kathy – this is awesome. Love the whole layout from the vellum, the tag with paper piercing, background and especially the way the embossing came out in different colour tones. Fabulous card.
