My Sheri Crafts Challenge #66 and Cards by Jovan

I made this card for two challenges. The first one is My Sheri Crafts. The challenge is to make something for back to school. Included is decorating book covers, journals, notebooks or bookmarks. The other challenge I'm entering my card in, is part of a Back-to-School blog hop that was Sat. August 13th that Cards by Jovan was hosting and the ending to it is a challenge. Jovan has some awesome give-a-ways with this challenge. So check both of these sites out and enjoy the awesome inspiration that both offer!! Now, on to my card. I had made a bookmark and did not like it one little bit. Not at all! It was a sorry excuse for a bookmark. So I knew I had to come up with something else. I decided to color this awesome digi image-School Goodies-Cutie Boy from Whimsie Doodles. (Check out her digis-awesomeness!) I think he is just adorable. Then I got to hunting for some school paper that I was so sure that I had in my stash. Couldn't find it anywhere. Stopped at Hobby Lobby after work yesterday and picked up this cute 'abc's' paper from their open stock. The sentiment is computer generated, trimmed down and inked to match the inked edges of the card and bg paper. The buttons I got from my stash. I'm really pleased with how this card turned out. You have until Saturday August 20th to enter either or both of these challenges. Hope ya'll like my card!!! :)
