Ready for Class

Entered:

This was SUPER EASY and fun to create. I was inspired by a photo I saw on Pinterest and gave it my own detailed twist.
Crayonsoriginal Pinterest photo
My Grand daughter is going to Kindergarten so I wanted something special for her new teacher.
I bought a box of Crayola crayons, used some left over rainbow ribbon that I have had for 5 years and an old styrofoam wreath that I could 
not figure out what to put on it! I also went through my yellow left over scrap paper since I didn't want to use a big piece.
Lots of hot glue (burnt fingers later) I used a Spellbinders (Labels 20) die cut for the yellow oval and inked it with Ranger Purple Twilight around the edges.
I had to add a couple of mini brads on the corners just for more color! I went out of the box on my computer skills and experimented with gradient color technique  on the lettering and what a super result since they had a rainbow effect as one of the choices! Lots of Stickles glitter in white and TA-DA!!!! 
I LOVE the way it turned out and maybe I'll make a mini one next time to enter more  on PTT create a card challenge.
