School Days

It's time for a new Twisted Tuesday Challenge...

Theme: School Days
Twist: You have to use chalks somewhere on your creation.

August 7 - 13

You're going to have to look closely to find the "chalk" on my card:

Did you find the chalk?

Here's a hint:

The very subtle coloring on the pages of the books was done with Pebbles, Inc. chalks.

I want to give a BIG THANK YOU to Roxane for gifting me the actual library card that I used on this card. She works at a library and knew I wanted some old library cards, so she mailed me a bundle of them. THANK YOU, Roxane! You're a great friend!!!

Here's the inside of my card:

Now let's see your school creations, complete with chalk.

Chalk: Pebbles, Inc.
Cardstock: Stampin' UP! Basic Black, Marigold Morning, and Riding Hood Red

Embellishments: Michael's Rhinestones
