House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #269 ~~ Anything Goes option Back to School

Here in Canada school isn't out for the summer yet but there is an option to make a back to school project and have it ready, or just go with the Anything Goes as long as it has a house mouse, happy hopper or a gruffie on it. This is my last challenge as guest designer at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge I guess all good things have to come to an end. I decided my image really needed to be a square card (been into squares lately)  I only have one stamp that can pass for "back to school" so I went with it.

First thing I thought was primary colours red, blue and yellow and I love my stitched square dies and the fancy square that goes with them. Of course I had to do a tiny bit of fussy cutting to make the image fit in the square. The embossing folder is sequins, I love the way they are random.

Monica is Taking Notes but if you look closely Monica is writing out lines. How would you have had to finish the line I Will Not..........

No appropriate sentiment to put in the inside but I used one of the 7 POP stamps I bought at the Butterfly Moon  they are so adorable, some are a miniature of larger stamps and will be awesome to use on envelopes and on the inside. You are going to see lots of these adorable little critters. (they are clear stamps they have critters & sentiments.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you keep checking to see what I have been up to. It has been a fantastic 3 months and now I can go back to just playing the challenges.
