The Sweet Stop Sketch #223

Well, I am now completely in back to school mode.  I've started putting my classroom back together, writing names on labels for the kids and getting ready to plan for another year of kindergartners.  When I go to the store I am always looking for deals on back to school items so I can stock my classroom for the upcoming year.  I guess that's why I chose the theme for my card to be Back to School as well.  Of course, the image I used has been sitting on my craft table for about a year itself, I just couldn't find the right time to use it.  I guess today's sketch at The Sweet Stop was just perfect for this image, which is Saturated Canary's Sisters Back 2 School.

Let's start with the sketch for this week's challenge.

And now my Back to School card using this image.

Materials Used:
Copic Markers
MS Border Punches
Baker's Twine
Glossy Accents

I hope you have the time to play along with us this week!  Of course I love sketch we have for you and you can find more cards to inspire, made by the amazing rest of the Sugar Babies, by stopping by our challenge blog.  Trust me, you'll be glad that you did!
Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!
