The Pixie Cottage Challenge #33 Back to School

For my design card for The Pixie Cottage this week I used Pumpkin Molly by Eileen Gutierrez.
I remember both of my children going on field trips/class trips every fall to the Pumpkin Patch.
It was the highlight of elementary school in the fall. I used K &Company cardstocks as well as bazzill. Flowers are by Prima and ribbon trims are from my stash!

It's another Once Upon A Wednesday and we have another fabulous sketch from Pam.
Sadly Pam has had some health issues that have forced her to step down from creating cards for us but she has a lasting legacy here as she created many wonderful sketches and we will continue using them to honor her time with us.

The challenge along with the sketch this week is a great one, "Back To School".
If your children haven't already gone back then they will be very soon and it's the perfect time to celebrate the upcoming school year.

You don't have to use a Pixie Cottage Stamp to enter but if you do have why not try out!
Remember you can use the sketch, the theme or both and can combine our challenge with any others you like!

One randomly picked winner will get their choice of 2 Pixie Cottage Stamps and the Design Teams Top Three entries will get to display the winners badge on their blog.
Winners will be announced on the Friday following the end of the challenge.

I am linking this card to these challenges:
Frosted Designs - Back To School
Paper Cutz - Anything Goes
Stampin For The Weekend - Anything Goes
Auds Sentiments - Anything Goes
Res Q - "Some Me Time" (use favorite things, mine are my Copic's, ribbons and flowers)

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave comments for me. It is very much appreciated!
