1st Day of 1st Grade: {SSC165}

Our daughter started first grade this week and this is the card I made to greet her the morning of her first day.  I meant to enter it in the Stampin' Royalty "back to school" challenge but I missed the deadline!  I used the sketch from the Stamping 411 operators and have managed to sneak it in barely under their deadline so at least I met one oops, nope, missed that one too...oh well...it's been a busy week around the Canopy!

I just love the Play Date designer paper featured here and you if you've been reading lately you know I can't stop using the Woodgrain background stamp!  I had some non-SU paper that fit my 'back to school' theme perfectly and is a pretty close match to SU's Real Red so I went with it!  My daughter doesn't mind that it's not "all SU"!

Thanks for stopping by today...Cheers!

Nance...... So cute! Arden will love it. Sorry you missed the deadline, which I do constantly, but the card is still adorable. Love the library card too.. so cute.

This is definitely a keeper, it will need to go in Arden's "School" mementos box. The card is so cute love all the colors and of course the owl punch!

Sweet card for a sweet little girl! Enjoy these moments.....my former first grader is 32~! And I am so happy when I see someone else miss a deadline or two :) I am always full of good intentions but.......

Oh My Goodness, this is way too cute. I love your colors and the use of the owl punch ( which I have to break out - I'm intimidated by it). All your elements works beautifully for this fantastic card. luv it!
