Class Act - Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge

Hello everyone!  I hope you're having a wonderful weekend.  I had some free time today so I decided to play along with this week's Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge. The theme is "Back to School" and since my desk is currently covered in school-themed stamps and dies, it was easy to be inspired! 

I went with a bold color combo of Black Licorice, White, Wild Cherry, and a pop of Sour Apple. I created a piece of notebook paper using the Notebook Edge Die-namics, a ruler, and some colored pencils. I stamped the cursive alphabet from Journal It - Head of the Class in Versamark.

I used the houndstooth pattern from Large Scale Backgrounds to stamp once on the Smooth White card base.

The sentiment is from Document It - Head of the Class, stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black.

I used the Red Delicious Die-namics as the main image. I used my Air Art tool from Stampin' Up to speckle the apple for a more realistic look. The A+, the Document It - School Days, was stamped in Wild Cherry on the coordinating die cut.

Head over to the Curtain Call Blog for all the details of the challenge and to play along.  :)
