Outlawz Twisted Thursday - "Back to School"

This week's theme over at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge the theme is "Back to School", and for the month of September we're being sponsored  by Nicecrane Designs.
For my card I used a vintage style digi from Sugar Kissed Cottage, and  I colored it using Promakers. The paper behind the image came free with a magazine and the background paper with flowers is from Prima. For the die cut elements I used kraft paper, dies from Marianne and Memory Box. I used Walnut Distress Ink on the fence and tree, and for the clouds I used a white gel pen for outlining. The sentiment is a chipboard sticker, and I machine stitched around the edges.

This card is also for these challenges:
1) Card Crafter's Circle - #90 For the Boys
2) Digi Haven – Vintage or "Old"
3) The Cupboard Trilogy - #15 Male
4) Through the Purple Haze - Dies
5) Craft Room Challenge - Trees and/or Leaves
6) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
