Back-to-school with Edwin!

I have finally taken the time to make a card for some of the challenges I have been neglecting during this busy, busy summer! I've made a Magnolia card that I can enter in 3 different challenges:
http://thedutchmagnoliachickies.blogspot.com - #27 "Create a Card in Another Form/Shape"
http://dutchmagnolialovers.blogspot.com - #37 "Anything Goes - Back from Holiday"


Edwin is headed back to school...his holiday is done!
The odd shaped card is a gate-fold, turned on its side.
Edwin with his pencil, books and apple are all colored with a combination of Spectrum Noir markers*, Letraset ProMarkers and colored pencils.
The polka dot DP is Imaginesce* and the embossing folder I used on the tan cardstock is "Gridlock" by Tim Holtz*. The rest of the cardstock is from my stash. The "Back To School" I wrote myself because I don't have a stamp that says that! Hundreds of stamps but not one that says that! LOL
*the starred items I purchased at www.StampingScrapping.com


On the inside I made a little pocket to put a gift card in. I plan to send this to my grandson Clayton who will be going back to school in about 3 weeks. I am going to buy a gift card at our local ice cream shop for him and tuck it in the pocket before I send it. Sort of a mini "back-to-school" celebration!
And I always try to include a Bible verse for some extra encouragement! This one is Matt. 19:26 -
"With God, all things are possible." The stamp is one by Stampabilities.
The inside is a bit too plain now that I see it in a photo, so I may have to add a little frog or something!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!
