What A Big Girl! You're Going To School!

I hope you're ready for some new releases, today, and ready to do some shopping, because it's new release day at Bugaboo Stamps! If you're like me and are crazy about sock monkeys, then you're going to love this one!  (Okay, I admit it - I have one that I sleep with under my arm! LOL) Head over to the Bugaboo Stamps store and check out all the new goodies!

You can get more creative inspiration, too, using this weeks new releases, by scooting yourself on over to Catch The Bug! The DT has fabulous eye candy to show you!

For my project, of course, I've used today's new release, Sock Monkey School, from Bugaboo Stamps. I used this fun mix of school themed papers by Recollections.  The pink glitter ribbon is from my stash.  I used a white opaque pen by Inksentials, to add faux stitching to the card.  The bottom right panel is embellished with two pink pearls from my stash.  The sentiment is punched with oval and scalloped oval punches.  I've used a mix of flowers from my stash, that are from Prima and Meslyn Crafts. My card layout uses the sketch at Sketch Saturday.

I used this photo, from Just Inspirational challenges, for my color inspiration:

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
