Back to School

This week there have many back to school challenges which I am not usually interested in but decided to one since I do have a perfect stamp set "Lesson Learned" from Mark's Finest Papers for this theme. Starting with a bright yellow card base, I added a mat of Red Cardstock embossed with Chevron EF by Darice. On White card stcok I stamped the desk, the blackboard and repeated sentiment with Memento Inks..  I colored with Memento Markers.  The large apple is one that I made with shrinky dink.  I added the "ruler" which I made by printing a tape measure on a copier machine and found some leftover in my stash.
Kaboodle Doodles Challenge: Back to School

Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge: 176-Mask it
I did mask the desk seat to hide a letter.

I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
