Back To School

I created this back to school card using Apple Of My Eye from Karen's Doodles.  The sketch I used is from The Sweet Stop. The base of my card is white card stock backed in blue card stock and then again in red card stock.  I added a block of primary lined school paper card stock, backed it in red and then added it to a strip of blue. I added a red gingham ribbon to the bottom of the strip of blue and backed it in red card stock.  I added 3 red rhinestones to the left bottom corner under the ribbon.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils.  I cut the image out in a circle, backed it in red card stock and then cut around it using scalloped scissors. I added a yellow star to the lower right of the image.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
