Back to school card

Weather here today is dark clouds with a chill wind, but dry so far, a lot different to the East coast of the country I here, my brother and SIL live in Lincolnshire and they told me this morning that it is blue skies and very warm, oh! well, I suppose we can't grumble we have had a week with lovely weather. LOL.

My youngest great nephew is starting school this week, so I decided to make him a card for a little encouragement, not that he needs it, he is thrilled to be going, although he will be going part time for a few weeks, to let him settle in, gently I suppose.  They didn't do that in my days!

Here it is, I used the same Meljens sketch as yesterday, love this layout. I used papers and elements from a free mini scrap booking kit by Kristin Argard Here and the wonderful Vroom Vroom car from Meljens Designs Here, I used this as he has to be driven to school.  I layered the papers after printing onto gloss paper. Hope he likes it.

I am going to enter a challenge or 2 today
