CAS-ual Fridays: Back to School

 
It's finally here!  I'm so super excited to be sharing my first card as a Girl Friday over at CAS-ual Fridays!   Since it's officially September and the start of most schools by now, we are celebrating Back to School!
 
 
So the challenge for the next TWO weeks is to create a CAS Back to School project.  Our fabulous sponsor this week is Ellen Hutson!  The winner of this challenge will earn a $25 store credit to use!
 
 
I can never have enough teacher cards......there's the classroom teacher, the band teacher, the art teacher, etc. and the list goes on.  So I used this opportunity to whip up this CAS thanks teacher card!  I've used a Paper Smooches stamp set called Smarty Pants to stamp my images and colored in some areas with Copics onto a grid pattern paper from 24 seven by Simple Stories.  My apple is popped up for dimension and glossy accents applied.  I've given texture to an otherwise plain card using an impression plate from PTI called Rustic Burlap. 
 
9.5.13  
 
Remember, this is two week challenge so you have until September 18th to play along. I can't wait to see what you create!  Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me!
 
***I am going to send this card over to the Curtain Call Back to School Challenge and the CASology Cue Card: Apple!***
