Sparkle and Shine Challenge #12

Hi there!  It's time for another Sparkle and Shine Challenge!!  This week's challenge is Back to School themed!  Here is our inspiration photo:

We are sponsored by our friends at Winnie and Walter!

Here is my card!  As soon as I saw the mason jars in the picture, I knew I wanted to use my Paper Smooches Best Buds stamp set.  I stamped and colored the flower jar image using copic markers, and to mimic the inspiration photo, I colored the jar black.  I love the look!  I incorporate the school theme, I added the pencil and apple along with a sentiment from Paper Smooches Smarty Pants.  The scene was all stamped on a diecut panel using the Mama Elephant Sew Fancy Frames.  I diecut a piece of black card stock using the cross stitched die from the same die set, and added some white pigment ink using a paper towel to make it look like a chalk board.  To finish things off, I added a scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins.

Thanks Teacher
