*Use It Tuesday #14*

It's time to play again with the girls at Use It Tuesday.  I love that these challenges are only twice a month... it gives everyone lots of time to play and post their cards!!!

For this challenge we are asking you to create something with a back to school theme.... and once again, you are challenged to use stuff from your stash (not new stuff!).

Let me tell you, some of our challenges are really challenging  me.  This one did as I've never done anything "back to school" themed in my 15 years of card making!!!

But, I was able to get a digi image from my friend Allison (see her link under the CalGals) and the rest of the items came from my stash....
Items Used:
*Cardstock: PTI White; Stampin' Up! Rose Red, Bashful Blue, Wild Wasabi
*Pattern Paper: Stampin' Up (from my stash!)
*Images: Amber Ink digital image
*Ink: Copics
*Tools: Big Shot; Crafts Too Polka Dots embossing folder (also from my stash.... found it at the bottom of the pile!)
*Challenges:  UseItTuesday#14

Please play along with us for this great challenge....  I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
