Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Back to School

Hello and good morning everyone ---

Well it's Saturday and Sweet Stampintime - so I'm here to share my Design Team Challenge card with you. Our theme this week is 'Back to School' and just had to use one of my new purchases from LOTV (Lilli Of The Valley). I love how they've made a lot of their stamps digital, now making them so easy to colour as I always found them too small before. So for my card I used 'Back To School Girl' and made her quite large and just kept the layout quite simple.

To enter our challenge please REMEMBER you must include a stamped element on your card/project, follow our theme and link back to the Sweet Stampin' blog for a chance to win a prize! 

Here's What I Did
I matted a 5" x 5" white card base with black card and a piece of printed paper which I cut to size. Next I printed the little school girl onto colouring card stock and used Spectrum Noir pens to colour her in. The completed image was die cut and matted onto a black die cut shape - this was then attached to the card base using foam tape.

To complete the card I added an A, B, C cut from red card onto the front.

Here's What I Used
Stamp: 'Back to School Girl' from LOTV
Spectrum Noir: Skin - Blender, FS2, FS4, TN2, TN3, CR3 / Pinafore - IG1, IG2, IG4, IG7 / Bag, Shoes - CR1, CR2, CR7, CR11, DR5, CT2, TN1, TN3 / Shirt, Socks - TB1, Blender / Hair - TN1, TN3, TN7, GB1, GB2 / Tie, Ruler, Pen, Badge - CT1, CT2, OR1, CR1, CR7, TN1, TN3 / Ground - IG1. IG7

Ooh I'm so excited about the digi's, isn't it fab! I totally agree, being able to make them bigger (or smaller) is a real benefit. I'll be getting loads more for sure! Utterly love your fabulous 'back to school' card Janine. The alphabet paper is such a wonderful backdrop and your enchanting wee girlie, such a cutie for this challenge. Perfectly coloured and man on man, do I love that frame!! I also love the fabulous pops of red and the ABC's. Super gorgeous card! Hugs, Wends xoxo (Thinking of you everyday and sending well wishes your way xoxo)
