Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday # 760 -Back to School

It's Monday- but today is a good Monday- NO WORK!!

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend.

Today is another Monday Challenge at Fantabulous Cricut .

I almost didn't get this card done. Remember, I don't do the back to school thing. These school challenges really stump me.

But then, as I was fretting, an idea popped into my head so I had to get it done asap before I would forget. It went together literally in 25 minutes.

I purposely left the embossing messy so it would look like a used chalk board.

Hope to see what you come up with for this challenge and link it up over at Fantabulous Cricut this week.


Here's How I did it...
Kraft paper and other scraps from my stash
Pattern pencil paper from Fancy Pants
Boy/layers cut at 4" from A Child's Year
Chalkboard is free had cut rectangle from black card stock
Twine from Twinery
ABC's stamped and heat embossed using MPS Font-abulous stamp set
