Back to School Card for Kindergarten teacher

Hello Crafty Friends.

I have created a "back to school" card  with one of Robert Jackson's digi images. This digi name is
"Lil Back to School" You can find her on the Lil Folks gallery: I love this image.

I think the image is super cute for my daughter's Kindergarten teacher card. 
Or even a scrapbook layout for 1st Day of School.
 Somewhat detail of the "wooden desk."
I used Copic markers for the clothes, books, apples and skin. I used Spectrum Noir markers for her hair much cheaper than Copics- they did bleed a tiny bit but I wasn't using special paper... just plain old card-stock which is why I had to change my whole "card plan." (Can't throw my coloring away... I know it's just paper and ink but I'm slow at coloring and I barely do anything crafty so just make something different with the image right?) So I cut it and gave it a slight pop up look by fussy cutting her . I reprinted the image in brown for the desk and used a zebra embossing folder moving it slightly 3 times to give it a "wood" look but the embossing was too deep so I ran in without a folder to flatten it out a bit. I used glossy accents on the hair knockers/balls as well as on the mug to give it that ceramic look (sorry my photography didn't capture that.) The sentiment is from Emma's  My Creative Time, Gift Card Sentiments.

Thank you so much for stopping by my page. I hope you check out more of Robert Jackson's digis. Also, there are Weekly challenges always "Anything Goes."

Much Crafty Love,

I've entered my card at the following challenges:
Theme: "Escuela" which means "School" in Spanish. - I hope I still qualify for the challenge.
There is a sketch provided on the link. "Clean and Simple (plus a sentiment)"
I'm a little CAS challenged so I hope this works too ;)
