No Dream is to Big.....

No automatic alt text available.

Hello everyone: All of us at the RETRO RUBBER challenge blog have a fun theme for you to play with.  Every student in the USA and the world has gone back to school, some for the very first time ever, whether is Kindergarten, Elementary School, Middle School, High School or College, these young people need some support and encouragement so, to give them just that we want you to create a card for your student or their teachers. 
Here is the card I made to inspire you to play along and join my teammates and me in our gallery.

As I was thinking about making my card, I came to the realization that I have absolutely NO STAMP SETS with a teacher's theme so, as you can imagine, I was in a pickle as to what to do.  
I went to Pinterest to look for some ideas and found several cards that had books made out of card stock so I went in this direction.  
I liked the idea of putting an actual notebook page on my card so I simply pulled one from my notebook and used it as my background layer.  The rest, as you can see, is simple, I had the apple already colored so I just fussy cut it to add to my design, the books were cut from DSP, I used a gold gel pen to add some decorations and the titles for each.  I die cut the word AMAZING to hopefully inspire the recipient to have an amazing school year.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts and it fits perfectly with this school theme, dreaming BIG is the key to achieving your goals.
I hope you come and play with us over at the RETRO RUBBER CHALLENGE BLOG, be sure to stop by my teammates' blogs to check out their awesome creations.
We do have a few rules to keep things fair.
This challenge blog requires you to use stamps that are OLDER THAN ONE YEAR, please give us the age or how long you've had it.
You can combine our challenge with a maximum of 10 challenges.
Turn off your WORD VERIFICATION so we can comment on your card.
If you post your card on a private forum such as Splitcoaststampers or a photo sharing site, we might not be able to comment on your creation, thank you for understanding.

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Very fun card! I too sometimes visit Pinterest to generate ideas, and this card works really well for the BTS theme!

Great idea to use real objects in your card. Like you, I don't have school theme/teacher themes either so the challenge made us creative!

Your card is great for our challenge, Maria! It didn't occur to me to check Pinterest but it is often a great source of inspiration. You took the inspiration and hit a homerun with your great card. The details are spot on.
