Back to school!

Say it ain't so!! I know a lot of teachers who hate to see the end of July! It means August is coming and we all have to get started on our rooms at school. Summer is trickling through our fingers! But, all that aside, I couldn't resist coloring one of Mo's school children digital images. This one is Trinity. Take a look at all Mo's School Kids HERE
I started out wanting to use the beautiful new Papertrey color Harvest Gold (is it like SUs new daffodil?) for my card. Once her sweater was done I decided on a cute denim skirt. Blue and yellow, perfect! I had no intention of going with primary colors, but because of the apple the red snuck in! Hey, a green apple would have been okay too, I guess. Oh, well.
I don't like how the ruler ribbon bled. I stamped the ruler from the PTI school set onto grosgrain ribbon. I'll have to work on that! It would probably be okay on an antiqued card but I'm not so sure on this one~I may have to take it apart and do a fix!

colors used are;
skin E00, E11, R30
Hair Y21, YR24, E35, E25
Red R08, R17, R27, R29
Yellow Y21, Y23
Blues (a lot to get the color I wanted)
B21, B41, B23, B95, B45, B99
Dp is Cosmo Cricket, Jillibean Soup and Bo Bunny!
I have the sketch in my saved files, but I'm sorry, I don't know whose it is.
Thanks for coming by today!
Tomorrow is the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long blog hop and Monday is the Magnolia-licious DT blog hop with a Nautical theme starting right here!
I think Monday will be a good time to get my Blog candy pulled together for all my wonderful regular visitors who take the time to come by.
Have an excellent day!

OMGosh! She's soooo cute! Love this card! But what are you talking about the summer being over already? We still have a month left! Don't rush it...summer is too short (and muggy and sticky hot...yuck!)! LOL!
