School Days

Yes it is that time of year and I'm busy making 'back to school' cards, this one is going to a great nephew.

 I first saw this image on a card Nana Connie had made and it quite caught my fancy!The image is from QKR Stampede (love their stamps),the paper is Stampin Up and the colouring was done with Prismacolour Markers. The punch for the banner  is from Stampin Up and  I made the head of the snake and the apple dimensional using foam tape( printed image out twice, coloured  and cut out the two items and placed over the  previously coloured image). The embossed background is from Cuttlebugs's folder 'Tiny Mosaic' .  A quick and easy card to make!
