Back to school!

Since all of the kiddies are headed back to school this time of year I thought I would make a card to honor such an occasion!  I use to love getting new pencils, paper, crayons, markers and folders when I was a child.  Oh, the anticipation.  I am not sure what this Tilda is called but I fell in love with it when I received it in an image swap that I participated in a year or so ago.  (great way to expand your image collection!).  She reminded me of Jessica (dd) with the glasses and all.  Jessica has worn glasses since she was 20 months old.  I loved using my new large scalloped border die from My Favorite Things on my card today. I also used one of their dies to make my Rolled Rose flower (blue).  I really like the way this one turned out.  Isn't she adorable?  Love, Elle
