Have I seen you somewhere before?...

...well, the answer is 'Yes you have'! because this is the same image I used for my other grandaughter's 'Back to School' card but doesn't she look different in these colours and in this setting? This card is for number one granddaughter, Holly who is starting senior school this month - another new beginning for her!

Go here to see her in a different setting and to pick up the image details.

I'm afraid I didn't keep a note of the Copics I used for you - sorry!...but I can tell you that the edges of the image are distressed with Chipped Sapphire DI. (Don't know what I'd do without these inks!!) The blue spotted paper is a digital download from Bearly Mine Crafts and this one is just the perfect colour for the image. I used Bev's wonderful tutorial on Resizing Digi Papers, so thanks so much for that hun - it worked perfectly! The pink stripey paper was from my stash and just a scrap, so I can't tell you whose it is. Also from my stash is the butterfly ribbon, which I picked up at a craft show somewhere - I have a habit of picking up things at craft shows, that's why I have to keep working! LOL

The wonderful flowers and stamens are from Wild Orchid Crafts (link in my sidebar) and the sentiment was computer generated.

I believe this qualifies for the Oldie but a Goodie Challenge, which is New Beginnings. I think this image has been around long enough to fit the bill.

You'll no doubt be relieved to hear that you've seen the last of Back to School cards...well, at least for another year, so now we can get on with something different.

Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope you enjoyed looking at this project.
