Back to School with Paper Cupcakes

for my Kaboodle Doodles post, please click here.

Hello! I was so excited when I saw that the new challenge at Paper Cupcakes for this week was Back to School. I really enjoy Nina's images and thought that this country girl would be perfect for a prim-feel card. You are welcome to use any images in the challenge, but Nina always offers a freebie over on the Paper Cupcakes blog. One winner will receive their choice of 2 images from the Paper Cupcakes store, so be sure to play along with us! :)

I decided to add elements to my card that would give it a back to school, as well as a country/primitive feel. Most of the embellies come from Making Memories. Papers are Basic Grey Recess and Jenni Bowlin Red & Black. that great burlap flower is from Prima. buttons are all from my vintage stash. and oh how I love to use my label maker! :)
