You Get An A+!

Hi everyone!!! Happy Wednesday!!

Here is a card I made using Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge from yesterday, MTSC69!! I LOVE this layout and will be using it again for sure!! Gotta love Mercy's sketches!!!

For my card, I used twp of the UBER adorable new releases from Taylored Expressions, Make the Grade and Extra Credit! These sets are SO fun...I haven't even put them on my shelf, they just sit on my desk to be used over and over!!!

I started by stamping this sweet schoolhouse from Make The Grade in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream and colored it with Copic Markers. I cut it out with Oval Nestabilities and sponged the edges.

My "A+" is also from Make The Grade, and I stamped the apple from Extra Credit in Green Galore behind it. I cut this out with Circle Nestabilities, sponged the edges and then layered it on Scallop Circle Nestabilities.

This is kind of a strange color combo for me, but I like how it came out! The patterned paper is from Report Card by October Afternoon, and the cardstock is Prism Classic Blue & Intense Kiwi. I finished off the card with three Green Galore Brads, and somehow refrained from putting a bow on this!!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
