Magnolia Back to School Card

Hello, ladies! It's challenge day at 
perfect moment for you to get to play with your Maggies and come up with a SCHOOL card/project, whatever suits you most.

Since I don't have a school themed Magnolia stamp, I altered a bit some other stamps I have and added some really lovely digital elements from Elizabeth Dulemba to make them look as  pupils:)

Since the stamps are cut out and then assembled I chose to add an acetate sheet onto protect it and for a neat look, hence the blurry aspect of the whole image. In flesh, it looks beautiful:)
Here's a look on the inside:

The quilled flower basket is one of my older creations, a souvenir from a time when I really had lots of time for myself:). I thought it looks nice on this card.
Here's a close-up:

and a little notebook sheet for some wording: 

Ingredients for my card:
Stamps: Magnolia- Edwin with Butterfly (lol, replaced with the pencil) and Tilda with Flowing Hair,
school bag, clock and book pile from Elizabeth O. Dulemba
Medium: copics/promarkers
DP: Cosmo Cricket- Boyfriend-digital from Jessica Sprague, Echo Park, MME
Embellishments: quilled flowers and flower basket, flower from WOC, pencils from stash, ribbon from local store

This card is for sale in my Etsy shop here.
