Back 2 School Card with Leanne

Hello crafty friends! It’s that time of year again for kids to go back to school.  My kiddos start next week.  I thought it would be fun to make a card to mark the occasion and give to my son’s fifth grade teacher.  I pulled out one of my favorite fall stamps sets from last year to create fun little scene. I started with an A2 size white card stock panel.  I blended on some blue ink (a combo of Tumbled Glass & Blueprint Sketch Oxide Inks) around the top and sides.  I used the new Buffalo Check Background...
