I dropped my DS #1 (aka My baby) off for his first day of first grade an hour ago, and I'm already anxious for him to be home and hear all about it. He's so *grown up* that he won't even let me walk him to class on the first day. (same happened with Kindergarten. boo hoo)
So of course I had to make today's card for him! His favorite colors are orange and blue.
This is a hinge card (?right term?) and only the vanilla layers are NOT popped up. The *stitches* on the big star happened b/c silly me was trying to ink the edges with my marker, and of coure it slipped! Had to disguise my oops, so ta-da!
Thank you, Oregon Stamper, again for the Starstruck stars!

What a fun card -- I love it -- very interesting backdrop as well -- cool -- I'm sure your little boy is having a wonderful day -- how I remember the waiting and anticipation for them to get home -- you know, it never changes, no matter how old they get!!! Enjoy your day!!!

Love your card!
I remember the first day of 1st grade for my daughter....I cried walking home after dropping her off. Much harder than preschool or kindergarten! She is going into 7th grade this year....yikes!
