Twisted Tuesdays!

   Tuesday Twists!!  Time for another fun challenge!  Today's challenge is to make a Back to School themed card and the twist...is to use chalk on your card!  I knew exactly what my card was going to look like!  I had it all planned out in my head and then when I went to grab the stamps to get started I realized I didn't even own the stamp set I was going to use! LOL  Time to do some inventory control, I believe!  LOL  So, I changed the plan and this is what came to life instead:

I used the cute little bus from Every Little Bit.  I used chalk to create the shadows under the buses and to color my main bus image in slightly. 

I used the new Finishing Touches Edgelits to make the scalloped looking edges (in red) and shaded each of the hearts in the matching red.  

I added small dots with my white gel pen around the edges of my scalloped circle.  I think there is a lot to be said for paying attention to the details!

Be sure to head on over to Twisted Tuesdays  and check out this week's challenge!  Also, check out the beautiful creations of the other design team members!  Good stuff! :)

Have a wonderful day!
