Whimsie Doodle & Back To School

Hello.  Are you enjoying your day?  It has been a nice day here.  Not hot at all.

I don't normally do back to school cards.  However, I have a niece who is in college learning to become a teacher.  I like to send her a card every year.  She might even get more than one this year.

This is School Lizzie by Whimsie Doodles.  I tried to make her blonde but it was too yellowish so I tried to tone it down some.  I don't know that I succeed.  I will try again on the second card. 

The card itself can be found on Silhouette Online.  I made the border on the back of the card red instead of green and added the white background (for writing my message) and a small apple.  It looked bare across the top so I added a button.

I am going to use this card for the following challenges:
   Eureka - Add Buttons
   Artistic Inspiration - Back To School
   Paper Take Weekly - Anything Goes
   Penny's Challenge - Anything Goes
   Crafty Girls - Anything Goes

I hope you enjoy the card.  I need to clean off my craft table so I don't know if I will be back tonight or not.  Have a good one.
