CAS-ual Fridays #68

Please scroll down for my 12 Kits of Christmas post!



Hello there!

Just zooming by with this week's new challenge at CAS-ual Fridays!  This week's theme is Top of the Class, and we want to see your clean and simple back to school creation.



We have another fantastic sponsor this week:  it's Pretty Paper Studio!  They've offered up a generous prize for our winner this week.  Thanks, Pretty Paper Studio!


There are lots of exciting announcements and teasers on the CAS-ual Fridays blog today, but you'll have to hop over there to read for yourself.  ;)  All I can say is that we have a fabulous new Girl Friday joining us this week, and I'm thrilled to have her on the team.  

My card is super easy and straight-forward, so I'll keep this brief.  :)

I stamped the pencil image from Paper Smooches' Smarty Pants repeatedly in Basic Gray ink, adding one in black ink and facing the opposite direction.  I colored it with Copics, added a stitched border, and put the panel on a red card base.  

The sentiment, also from Paper Smooches, was stamped onto a red banner, trimmed, and added with foam tape.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy), WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Stamps:  Paper Smooches (Smarty Pants, Sentiment Sampler)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Basic Gray), Memento (Tuxedo Black), Copic markers
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (banner die)
Accessories:  thread

The Girl Fridays have lots of fun school-themed projects to get you going this week, so stop by to see what they've done!

Thanks for your visit today!
