In My Dreams

My second post for today. Scroll down to see the birthday card I made. Have you ever had a card that just fell out of your head onto the card stock? Well this one is just such a card. I woke up several times last night thinking about a Back to School card that I wanted to make to send to Tom's nephew. And this is exactly as I envisioned it. It just kind of fell out of my head. LOL!
Looking at the front of this card you probably wouldn't guess that this was a back to school card but stay with me for a minute. The image is from Doodle Pantry called Picnic Ants, part of the August release. I used the pre-colored version of the stamp. I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning sketches to make the card. The twist for the challenge was buttons and bows and since it's going to a boy I went with the buttons.  The sentiment is my own typed out on my computer. So here's the back to school part!

The pre-colored image again is from Doodle Pantry called School Bus. And the sentiment was done on my computer. All the designer papers come with the Picnic Ants stamp set. I just love the way this one came out. I think Tom's nephew will like it too!

I am entering this card into these challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope your next card falls out of your dreams! LOL

The picnic ants with the fabulous sentiment makes just a great 'back-to-school' card. Love how the sentiment begins on the front and ends on the inside (which is wonderfully done by the way). Great card Donna!

I do that a lot, it is nice to know other people do that also.. You sure said it when it comes to summer it is gone, your card is so colorful and love your papers, buttons are a nice touch for boys and the school bus on the inside make it a great back to school card. So glad you joined us at Twisted Thursday.
Hugs, Pat
