School Days

It's that time of year again; time to go back to school. This week's Bloggers Challenge is back to school. I created my card based on the layout from the Mojo Monday sketch challenge.
The design paper panel is from Graphic45 An ABC Primer which I die cut using a Cheery Lynn Reflections Boutique die, Celtic Chain rectangle. I layered the panel on red cardstock.  Instead of ribbon, I used a ruler sticker (I've had this embellishment in my stash for years. It was just the touch I was looking for today.)  The black panel was cut from a piece of very smooth cardstock which reminded me of a blackboard. The a, b, c letters are grungeboard painted with my white paint dabber. The letters were layered on the die cut butterflies. (Cheery Lynn) The other paper elements are also from An ABC Primer.
My card also meets the challenge at Cheery Lynn which is ABC; the Take a Word challenge which is wings; and the Creative Belli challenge which is winged things.
