Back to School

Back to school time was always one of my  favorite times when I was a kid.  Weird, right?  I just liked spending the time with my mom and sister, driving all over for school shopping, getting new stuff to start off the year right.  This little card is for my mom, who still works at the elementary school that I'm a proud graduate of.

I cut the card base to A2 size.  The patterned paper is from the All Seasons 2 stack from Paper Studio.  I thought the crayons were perfect.   I cut the apple from Doodlecharms and the worm from Create a Critter.  See how I made a bite out of the apple?  Someone gave me a corner punch that is a kind of a backwards scallopy thing with a design inside.  BUT, if you make it so that the corner doesn't go in all the way, it just cuts a bite mark looking chomp out of it.  I made the twine with white yarn and a blue Sharpie.  I tied it in a bow on the front, which was much harder than it looks.  Then I stamped the sentiment from Holiday Occasions from Joy's Life.  

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Cardz TV- School is cool
Cricut Chirp- A buzzing bug bow
