Try Stamping on Tuesday

Today's sketch at Try Stampin on Tuesday is dedicated to Back to School with a little twist...the use of metal or metallic color (silver, gold, bronze).

I really had no idea where I was going with this one--especially the metallic part -- my brain did not even think about paper clips and items of that nature as the answer--no I went with a gold marker and a gold and silver star??!!  Not the best idea but it did work, lol.  

I used a bunch of items that I have not touched in years--the star is and apple are both sizzix dies, the circle is a framelit.  The paper is from one of those big paper packs that has a school theme from one of the box stores.It was a scrap piece so I do not even know who makes it.  But there you have it--a back to school theme card with metallic colors.  This will be for my son on Thursday when he goes back to school--whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!  I hate the end of summer.
