One of the perks from stamping with Brandi (besides stamping with Brandi!!) is that I got to play with stamp sets that I do not own and therefore are new to me. You might recognize this cute school set from a past minicatalogue. I always thought it was beyond adorable, but since it was only available in English, it didn't make it on my purchase list. The red, blue and green combo seemed perfect for a school-themed card and a natural match to this set.
My first idea was to turn the tag into a bookmark but I think through the process, I ended up forgetting about this idea and it ended up being glued on the card. (I blame the wine...) The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs set. The fact that the sentiments come as pairs allowed me to stamp them separately on two of the little notebook sheets and fill in the space.
Don't look too closely as my coloring. I used markers, which I rarely do to color in an image and I think you can tell. I'm thinking of adding a dab of Crystal Effects on the glasses to give them some shine. What do you think?
