Back to School Copy Fav Designer Card

Created this Back to School Card & copied it after 2 fav designers, Debbie M. who copied her card after Melissa P. for Kraft Journal challenge. 

Made my card a Back to School Card instead of an Autumn Card with elements like the cards created by Debbie M. & Melissa P.

I stamped the Snoopy Bus Driver on white cardstock & on acetate. Colored the white cardstock image with Stamp N Plus yellow chalk mixed w/ white acrylic paint and crayola Pencil colors. Placed the acetate stamped image over the white cardstock image. Cut the Snoopy Bus image out. 

Used Kraft cardstock for base. Used Chevron pattern paper; green for grass & blue for sky. Used chipboard recycled from a cardboard box for sentiment tag. Stamped Docerela Creations sentiment on sentiment tag. Stamped Basic Grey 'A+' on Kraft cardstock. Added fabric bow, twine & a heart locket.
