Since there is always a Mini Catalogue now, I thought I could show a card each week using products from the current Mini Catalogue. There's only eight days left to order from the Summer Mini Catalogue, and this set (First Day) is perfect for school layouts and cards. I'm hoping Morgan's teacher enjoys this card for the first day of school.
I loved the little row of apples in this set, and used the bigger apple from Tart & Tangy to create my background. I found the colour combination (Pear Pizazz, More Mustard and Cajun Craze) in the Colour Coach, and thought it was perfect for a fall card. I added the 'happy' from Fabulous Phrases to the 'first day of school' sentiment that comes in the First Day stamp set. I love that the Dotted Scallop Ribbon border can be used in more than one way... it's the perfect accent peeking out from behind the stamped panel.
