My Sheri Crafts Challenge #116: Back to School

It's that time of year again for many of you, so we're celebrating Back to School @ My Sheri Crafts!!! Gearing my card for the younger bus-riding crowd, I found a free SVG file @ http://www.scrapbooksvg.com/freebies/ which worked perfectly! The cut file actually includes the words 'school bus' cut out, but I stamped my letters instead using JustRite retired alpha letters.
I also wanted that very important STOP sign for my bus, reminding all students and drivers out there to 'Be Safe', so I cut the sign from a Spellbinders Octagon die and embossed my word in white EP. I then took an embossing pen to add white embossing along the edges. My sentiment is from stick-on letters I had in my stash. For windows, I took a strip of vellum and colored with an aqua Copic. Finishing off the bus are some sparkly Little Yellow Bicycle jewels for lights that sadly don't sparkle very well in photos, but are fabulous in person!











My card is bright/colorful inside. Since my bus w/stop sign took a 6 1/2" card size, I pieced the right inside edge, secured with Washi tape and then added 2 more Washi strips just for FUN. My inside sentiment is stick-on letters too. Hope to see your back to school projects @ MSC in the next 2 weeks!
