This week's theme was back to school. In addition our card was to include the chalkboard technique, the colour Real Red and a current or retired stamp set. Initially I thought I would not participate because I don't really have any "school" stamp sets.
I remembered that I had seen a card a few years ago on Stampin' Connection that kind of fit in with the Back to School theme.
Here's my card
I loved the little owl sitting on top of the stack of books. I haven't used the owl punch in a while. I ended up using My Digital Studio for the apple - I know I still have the Tart & Tangy stamp set but I must have packed it away.
I used a white pencil crayon - how I wish I had the new White Chalk Marker from the Holiday Catalogue (another item for the Wish List!).
