Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge #97 - Back To School

Good morning!  It's Thursday and time for the weekly challenge on Mo's DP2 Challenge blog!  It's my last week as GD for the month and I have to say, I am so sad to see my stint designing with the awesome Mo's DT coming to an end!  It has been so much fun and you can be sure that I will be back every week playing along with the future challenges! 

This week's theme was "Back To School".  I know for many of you, school has already started.  In my neighborhood, I see the buses every morning now and all the cute kids lining up to get on.  That was the inspiration for my card this week:

I chose this adorable image from Mo Manning called "Dundee".  I think he is just the cutest little guy!  I printed him on Cryogen White and colored him with Copic markers.  My 5 1/2" square card base is retired SU Buckaroo Blue. It's layered with papers from the Basic Grey Oxford 6x6 pad.  Some matching ribbon and a coordinating Basic Grey button finished my card.

Thanks for dropping by!  Be sure to check out this week's fabulous creations from Mo's wonderfully talented design team and why not play along with us?  If you enter a card in the challenge, you'll have a chance to win one of Mo's fantastic images!  Hope you'll be inspired to join in!

See you soon!
