Simple back to School

Not sure who this card will be for as my sons school days are long gone and his cousins would really think I'd lost the plot if I sent them a card for back to school but I made it anyway. I haven't added a sentiment as it may well end up as some other kind of card .

Anyway I used this super cute lily of the valley stamp of a cute wee boy ready for school, although I'm not sure his uniform is likely to be like any other I thought I'd make it colourful.

I have been away from crafting for a while whilst sorting my sons house and garden amongst other things but am having a few problems getting my creative head back in gear and my cards are all a little on the clean and simple side and this card is no exception though not out of choice they just seem to be happening this way.

I coloured my image with promarkers and fussy cut him out and simply added him to a plain white base card in one corner. Although it may appear a bit sparse I actually like all that white space, I did wonder about adding lines for handwriting practice or doodles but decided to just leave it blank.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

city crafter challenge-around the corner
