Back To School

 Well this card is nothing spectacular, but I must say I noticed when I was looking for a challenge to play along with I was coming across quite a few "school" themes.  So hence the list of challenges I'd like to submit this card to.  But, first let me tell you a bit about it.  I used two embossing folders.  The ruler one for the background and the alphabet one for the side ABC's  I then colored that one in with marker and glitter. Hence the two pictures.  One you see the glitter better, and the other the embossing.   I stamped the crayons using the 1993 school set from stamping up and fussy cut out the crayons, and matched them according to the letter color.  I tied it all together with a bit of twine and a little pencil, and even graded my work with an A+ stamp.   
I also wanted to share a picture of  my pal, HP ~he was waiting for me ever so patiently.  Such a cutie.   I'll have to share his puppy pictures someday.. He's adorableđź’—
Now for the challenges in no particular order:
"Back to School"
