Use it Tuesday - Challenge #14 - Back to School

The challenge over at Use it Tuesday - Challenge #14 - is Back to School! Use it Tuesday is all about using your "Scrappy Stash." In other words, all those goodies you have been hoarding! I previously made a card for my grandson, which you can find a few posts back on my blog, but I still needed a card for my granddaughter, so this was a perfect challenge for me! I began with a very old piece of background paper with hopscotches all over it! The image called Lizbeth is by Art Declassified, sadly no longer in business. I love to use this image as my granddaughter's name is Elizabeth and her smile is very much the same as that on the image. I added some very old alphabet twill tape and some equally old paper flowers. The apple and sentiment are by Studio G. Sure hope my granddaughter likes her card. Thanks for dropping by. Best, Yvonne
