School Rocks Card

Here's my entry to the Deconstructing Jen sketch #33. It’s the first week of the month so that means they are sponsored this week! Their fantastic sponsor is Scrapping Great Deals and they have very graciously offered a $25.00 gift certificate to the winner! How awesome is that?? So you can get your entries in by January 11, 2012 at 8 pm CST to be entered to win! I thought it would be fun to play!
My card features the super cute set from CTMH called "School Rocks" (B1396 $9.95).
The card base is made from Kraft cardstock, also CTMH (Z1375 $9.50 for 24 sheets).
The B&T paper is from the Typeset Level 2 Paper Packet (X7139B $9.95) along with vineyard berry, black, & colonial white cardstock. The stars & flourishes were cut using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge and my Cricut, then I ran them through my paper crimper. The bow is black & white baker's twine (purchased at Hobby Lobby). The scalloped strip was run through the Big Shot with a zigzag patterned embossing folder. and buttons were added with glue dots. One of the great things about the new background & texture paper from CTMH is that it comes with a designer strip to be cut off and used as a border and that is where the alphabet strip came from. It worked perfectly with this card! Thanks for looking!
Here's the inside greeting:
