Back to School at My Craft Spot!

Happy Monday, sweet friends! I pray you had a blessed weekend. :o)

It's time for a fun new challenge at My Craft Spot! This week we have a theme challenge: Back to School! I used this opportunity to make a cute little card for next month's I Feel the Love Project recipient. :o)
Several My Craft Spot goodies star in this card. :o) My card base was created with the Scrapping Life- Cards metal dies. Not only is it perfect for Project Life or scrapbooking, but it also makes such a sweet little card base! I used the leaves from Kimberly's new Flowers- Daisy metal dies on my apple, which are embossed with the Victoria Cuttlebug folder.
The sentiment is from Tiny Tags 3, which is cut out and layered with the coordinating Tiny Tags metal dies. The fun red and green notebook paper is from My Mind's Eye. It's from a Christmas collection, but came to mind for this project since it matches the theme and colors. :o)
The fun star border is from the Fancy Edges 2 metal die set. I used some of the negative star cuts for decoration. My sweet cut files are from Little Scraps of Heaven: Cat with Apple and Bear Holding Pencil. I fell in love with this precious kitty!

Tucked inside is a bunch of love. :o) (The interior heart die cut is also from the Scrapping Life- Cards set.)
Be sure to flutter on over to the My Craft Spot blog to see the fun creations from my teamies! I look forward to seeing what you create this week. :o) Have a sparkly day!
