Last night, I attended my fourth back-to-school night for this school year, and have been feeling especially grateful for the fabulous teachers and staff at both of the schools my children attend. This card is to honor all those who choose education as their profession. A+ for you!

Some of the fun details on today's card are thanks to my Curtain Call teammate, Sheri Gilson. Some of the Curtain Call girls decided to do a product swap, and Sheri drew my name. Check out the awesome loot she sent me!

I love everything, but especially the chevron embossing folders. I've been wanting to add some new folders to my stash for a while now, so these were perfect! You can see one of the embossing folders in action HERE.

For today, I combined one of the binder clips with a rectangle chipboard tag to look like a clipboard. I die-cut the tiny star border out of the adhesive-backed cork. I also added a plaid-patterned wood button. Thank you, Sheri! This was like Christmas!!

I enjoyed pairing some old and new REVERSE CONFETTI products, too. 

CLASS ACT is an obvious for any school card. Two new Pretty Panels dies make an appearance as well. The notebook paper panel is cut with TRIANGLES PRETTY PANELS CONFETTI CUTS, and the tiny red stars are the cut-outs leftover from the STARS PRETTY PANELS CONFETTI CUTS. The other larger stars were done with the OH MY STARS CONFETTI CUTS. The A+ fits perfectly in the smallest circle from the CIRCLES 'N SCALLOPS CONFETTI CUTS.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
