How to: dress for school

Hello, hope you are having a warm, sunny Sunday, as I have.
I am happy because today my new DT duties start - I have been chosen as a DT member for
How cool is that??? Thank you Ladies, I just LOVE combining challenges, and this is what PIO is for. Weeeee!
This week the theme is
Our sponsor this week is
So, let's get started.

My DT card is about 'back to school' - our kids start school in a week, and their teachers (like me) start tomorrow to prepare everything.
This card is made according to the sketch from Bearly Mine Challenges
I am using the sponsor's image 'Brighten Girl' - and this girl is dressed exactly the same way I was when I went to school! The stamp is colored with promarkers.
I found this colorful sheet of paper, but there was only one 6x6, so I did my best to use the scraps till the very end. After making a background I cut some flowers with a punch and believe me - nothing was waisted! I also added some embossing for the background, and I have to admit, it looks cool.
These white straps are also scraps. This is probably the most 'scrappy' card I've ever made LOL.
The sentiment says 'Best wishes'.
