Back to school card (The Paper Shelter image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I made a back to school card today using a really sweet image from The Paper Shelter. I have used her before so I've added the card below. I didn't compare or remember what I created last time and now I've found the photo I see I've almost used the same colours on her just the opposite way round, how funny! I added some turquoise rhinestones to the punched borders. I coloured her hair with my favourite Copic hair combination E21, 23, 25, 27 and 29.
