Back to School

My youngest child is entering his final year at primary next week and here's a not-too-complicated 'back to school' card for him.

The animal is by Mama Elephant - tbh I'm not really sure what kind of animal it's supposed to be. A mouse? I went for grey hoping that , if it's not a mouse, using a neutral couldn't be too far wrong (it's not a parrot, at least!).

The sentiment is by Hunkydory and the paper is  from Cosmo Cricket.

I'd like to enter:

  11. I do like this card - the textured card, the letters on the board and the cute critter all work so well with the theme. Thanks so much for playing along with our School Colours challenge at The Male Room. Deborah, DT.
