Mary Margaret Teacher's Pet

Happy Saturday!  Have you had time this week to play in the Michelle Perkett Studio Back to School challenge?  If not, there's still a few days left to enter and possibly win a little shopping spree at Michelle's Etsy store!

There's something new in Michelle's Esty store today too!

Meet Polly, Dolly & William
I love the vintage look and I can't wait to color them and make a card!

I've seen so many cards with Mary Margaret I've been inspired to color her and make a card for the challenge.  I've been enjoying that "Report Card" paper pack too.  I couldn't resist the checked paper and had to color her dress the same way, I have the perfect marker colors BG10 & BG11.  If you frequent my blog you'll know I've been using those a lot lately, it just can't seem to be helped!  

My layout is a past sketch from Taylored Expressions, there were three circles down the left side by the image and I saw apples.  The apples are a digital image that I re-sized to 1/2" and printed, colored, cut them out and after attaching them to the card with foam tape I applied Stampin' Up Crystal Effects for some shine. 

It's the weekend and my kids are home so I need to go!  Have a great weekend!
