Back to school card//

I have used My Mind’s Eye School Daze 6 x 6 paper pad to make my card. I used the pencils pattern paper from the paper pad as my background. Then layered the busy background with a smaller panel of vellum. For the focal point, I stamped the note pad and pencil from Clearly Besotted  Teacher’s Pet stamp set, coloured the pencil with copic markers then cut them both out. I layered the stamped note pad over vellum, then the sentiment cut out from the School daze paper pad and finally the pencil. Simple and easy to make. No technique. I just wanted My Mind’s Eye School Daze papers to shine. Here is a closeup of the card.
