Surprise Package!

I got a phone call from my local shipping company this morning to say that a package had arrived for me.  A package?  Today?  I had no idea the place was even open on Saturdays!  Sweet!  So the puppies and I hopped into the car and tootled off to town to pick it up.  It was an order from Stampin' Up which included the new In Colour cardstock and ink pads -  just in time for this week's ColourQ challenge.  :)  Unfortunately I don't have any Bermuda Bay paper or ink (seems wrong doesn't it?) so I had to find a sub but I think it looks pretty close.  I decided to make a Back to School card using Papertrey Ink's School Time stamps.  I'm also going to enter this in A Passion for Papertrey's masculine challenge (because I think the colours would work for a little guy) and in the Create Back to School challenge


Supplies Used:
Cardstock: (White) Gina K, (Soft Suede, Lucky Limeade, Ialand Indigo) Stampin' Up, (Turquoise) Paperbilities
Stamps: (School Time) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (VersaMark) Tsukineko, (Soft Suede, Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo) Stmapin' Up
Tools: (Corner Punch) Marvy Uchida (1/8" Hole Punch) McGill
