Too Cool For School

It's an Anything Goes challenge at One Stitch At A Time this week and, rather topically, given that the school year has just ended here, I used some great school-themed Education Stations papers from Panda Bear Designs to create with:
 
 
I also used a great digi stamp from Stitchy Stamps, called Hippie:
 
 
I loved the bright colours of these papers and wanted to really let them be the star of the show on this card so I cut and shaped them into a funky, slightly retro design, and then cut out my coloured digi stamp and attached her with foam pads:
 
 
I stamped out the sentiment (I thought it was appropriate :D) and hand-drew borders around the words and cut them out before attaching them.
 
The challenge runs for a week and, as ever, entries using a Stitchy Bear product will be eligible to win our main prize. Entries not using a Stitchy Bear product will be entered into the draw to win a $3 gift voucher to the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet.
 
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
