School Time and an End of Summer Sale!

Yes, back to school is right around the corner and LINDSAY'S STAMP STUFF is celebrating by hosting an END OF SUMMER SALE!!! Everything in her shop will be 30% off through Saturday!!! My Son will begin his Junior year of high school next Wednesday, so I thought I would make quick a card for him and put a little note of encouragement inside. I started with the SCHOOL PAPERS and the STEAMPUNK sets and just layered the typewriter and watch over the ledger paper in my Print Shop program. I colored the watch with a Bic Mark It pen and added some paper glaze to the watch face. I found these cool paper clips at Staples last year and thought they would be the perfect embellishments for this card. The sentiment was computer generated and printed right along with the paper. I adhered it to a black 5x5 card base and that was it! And remember, these sets along with everything else at LINDSAY'S STAMP STUFF are 30% off through Saturday! Hop on over to Lindsay's Blog where she has a couple of NEW SETS to show you, some fabulous new projects, and of course, her freebie of the week!!! You can also check out the rest of her Rockin' Design Team's Blogs and welcome new Designer, Laurel, to our Team! Happy (what's left of) Summer!
My card qualifies for the BUNNY ZOE vintage challenge!

Great vintage card. Sometimes it's hard to pull off black and white but you have knocked it out of the park.
