First Day of School - TPE 161

Good Morning and Happy Monday! It's time for a theme challenge from The Pink Elephant, Back to School, TPE 161.
I combined a couple of other challenges for my "Back to School" card. The Color Throwdown #204 worked well with Basic Gray, Poppy Parade, Very Vanilla and Pumpkin Pie, though I did need to add a smidge of green for that cute little bookworm:)
I was also excited to use Jen's August Sketch For You to Try...love all the fun layers and panels that I could add to my card!
Being a teacher, you would think that I have plenty of Back to School stamp sets to choose from, but guess what? I only own ONE, and it's an oldie (but, a goodie). I suppose I need to add some "school" stamps to my collection...let me know of any good ones that you like!
Thanks for stopping by the stage! Head on over to The Pink Elephant to see what the other fabulous designers have whipped up this week...and hope you'll play along:)

Stamps: Back to School (SU) Ink: Basic Gray (SU), Copics Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla, Basic Gray CS, assorted DSP (SU) Other: Big Shot, Apothecary Dies, Chevron Embossing Folder, Corduroy Button, Linen Thread, Spiral Punch (SU) Pin It

You asked about school themed stamps: Close to My Heart has a bunch of great ones. I wish I could attach a photo here. If you do a search for B1407 "School is Here". That's one I found doing a google search. There are a bunch of others. If you pm me, I can give you more details... not that I'm a consultant or anything. I just happen to be a big fan!!!
