# School Is Cool

Next week the kids will be going back to school. As you can imagine both the parents and the kids have mixed feelings about this. 
My neighbour's 4 year old will be starting junior kindergarten. She is excited and nervous all at the same time - understandable right?!  

My card today features Mary J Teacher Angel from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. The card colours are not traditional school colours but I wanted to try something different.......and I didn't have school themed paper in my paper stash - gasp! so I had to step outside the box and challenge myself to find a way to use what I did have. 

I coloured sweet Mary J with alcohol markers and fussy cut her. I chose my lined background paper - appropriate for school right?! and used the school background stamp to create my patterned paper. A letter edge die helped on the edge of one piece to keep my school theme. All the edges are inked with matching ink. Next I designed and printed my sentiment on my computer and cut it out with a fishtail banner die. It is hard to see in the photo but I added some clear sparkle pen to her wings. Some simple twine and matching gumdrops finish off my card.
