Curtain Call Act 44 & Sweet Sunday Sketch 82

Happy Friday! This is our last weekend before school starts. Where did the summer go? I am looking forward to fall, though, with the cooler weather, changing colors, and autumn holidays (including birthdays!).

But before we leave summer behind, how about another bright and summery combo from the Curtain Call Color Challenge? I paired up these fun colors with the Sweet Sunday Sketch to make a back to school card for my daughter's new teacher.

I had some scraps from Cosmo Cricket that worked perfectly for the Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight and fit the school theme. I used a $1 apple stamp from Studio G, stamping it in black, once on the Poppy cardstock and once onto white. I cut out the red apple, then just the inside portion of the white apple and layered them together. I covered the whole thing with some Glossy Accents for shine. The white cardstock in the background is debossed with the Book Plate impression plate from PTI. Finally, I thought the top was looking a little plain so I stuck a paper clip behind the patterned paper and tied it with some baker's twine.

Cardstock: Stampin' Up! (Poppy Parade, Tempting Turquoise), Papertrey Ink (white)
Patterned paper: Cosmo Cricket (The Boyfriend collection)
Stamp: Studio G (apple)
Ink: Clearsnap (Black)
Tools: Spellbinders (circle die), Marvy Uchida (circle punch), EK Success (corner rounder), Papertrey Ink (Book Plate impression plate)
Accessories: Making Memories (letter stickers), Ranger (Glossy Accents), paper clip, baker's twine

That's all for now! I'll have one more post later tonight, so be sure to stop by!
