Last Day of School

It's the last day of school for my two older kids so I thought I would try and make a quick card before the house ceases to be quiet and still until school resumes in August. :) 

This image is by From the Heart stamps and so is the sketch. I colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils. The ovals are punched using the Stampin' Up oval punch and the circles are from my Nestabilities. I'm using scraps from the Simon Says Stamp kit club (no longer available). My card base is SU's Gable Green. The rhinestones are Hero Arts. The inside is blank because this is a note card and I will write in it myself. :)

Thanks for looking! Hope this finds you happy and healthy.
