Back to School

With all the talk of going back to school I was inspired to create this card. The background stamp is by Deep Red. You can find this stamp HERE. I stamped the background stamp onto Crate Paper patterned paper and mounted that piece onto a brown cardstock.

I then embellished my card with a die cut and twine by Jillibean Soup. I tied a Karen Foster pencil charm onto the twine. On the die cut is a light bulb brad from Eyelet Outlet. The sentiment is a vellum sticker from OScrap which I've placed on piece of lined patterned paper by Recollections. The diamond patterned is by Imagination Project Gin X Artistix Cotton Art tape. That's a very old one from my stash. I'm still trying to use up some old stuff before I go out and buy the new products that are coming out or out from CHA. 

Be sure to check back tomorrow for another creation using Deep Red stamps.
