Back to school - summer's over!

This one's a bit different...
a bit unexpected.

At Patties Creations this month, 
the challenge is, 'back to school.'

I had a think  - and as I work in a school
I thought I would make a card for one of my colleagues.
I thought this might cheer her up a bit, on the first day back!

I used Patties image: Tropical drink with umbrellas
I coloured it with my promarkers
and made some teeny bunting, by hand-cutting some
tiny triangles, and inking the edges. 
The image has been backed onto a fab summery paper, from a
Lawn Fawn 6 x 6 paper pack. 
The spotty papers are from the same pack.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Crafty galz - atg - 7 Sept

Hahaha great sentiment! I can imagine that is exactly how it is too! Let's just hope there are drinks available that look as good as this one does (non-alcoholic of course).

Thank you for joining in at Aud Sentiments and good luck,

Haha! I used to work in a school! I think your sentiment is spot on! Love the vibrant colors of the drink with the softer colors of the rest of the details.
