Be Creative for Back to School

I was excited to learn the theme for the Paper Craft Crew this week was a Back to School theme.  We have already started school at this house and school has been the focus around here for the past couple of weeks.  I decided to use the Crafting Forever stamp set when creating this card since I whole heartedly believe in the importance of exercising your creative muscles daily and think that school should encourage and celebrate creativity as part of the learning process.

While creating this card, I used the Tic Tac Toe Challenge to help finalize my design.  I chose the middle vertical row featuring pink, oval, and sentiment.  I also decided to watercolor the cup full of paintbrushes and the background for the sentiment, so I am entering the card in the TGIF Challenge 122 since it is a watercolor challenge.

 Make sure you head on over to the challenges to check out the inspiration cards by the designers and other creative entries.
