FTL31

Happy Wednesday. I can't believe summer is winding down. Next Wednesday is the first day of school here. Yikes! My daughter is starting kindergarten, too, this year. Unfortunately kindergarten doesn't start until a week after regular school. So she's quite bummed that she isn't going to get to ride the bus for a whole week after her brother is already riding it. On to my card. I used the Fall-to Layout #31 from the Clean and Simple Stamping blog. I actually made 2 cards using the sketch, and they went together quickly. The second card {not pictured} followed the sketch, and I wrapped the ribbon all the way around the card front, instead of just the main panel. The bow on the other one didn't turn out so well, so I didn't try to get a picture of it. I plan on using the sketch again, so I'm writing down my measurements here so I don't have to remeasure every time I want to make this. The big panel is 4 3/4" x 3 1/2 ". The patterned paper is 2" x 3 1/2".

Stamp: Clear Dollar Stamps Words Of Sympathy
Ink: PTI Plum Pudding
CS: PTI Sweet Blush, White
DP: Basic Grey
Accessories: PTI Ripe Avocado Ribbon

Our Kindergarteners are on a staggered start the first 2 weeks, so mine goes 2 days this week, 3 days next week and then everyday after that. My older child thinks it unfair, then I reminded her she did that when she was a kindergartener. At least they both get out at the same time so I only have to make one trip in the afternoon.

Gorgeous card by the way!

Beautiful card! I like the bow wrapped around just the front panel - it makes it stand out!
