Back to School...

This is my fourth guest designer post for the Fairy Tale Challenge Blog
This week the challenge is Back to School Bingo. 

So much fun! Our summer will be coming to an end in the next week or two so this challenge is much needed for me to get things ready for that first day back. This for a sweet little friend who started back to school on Wednesday.

I used Echo Park's Paper and Glue design paper. The card base is Stampin' Up's Sahara Sand and measures 5.5 inches square. I colored my Magnolia image with a combo of Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. The ribbon is from Terri's stash and the apple charm can be found HERE.

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
