I am just a bit late for SOFTPENCIL THURSDAY due to some stuff that ran longer than expected and to the fact that this week has been crazy and I went to bed early last night.  Anyway, I am SUPER THRILLED for SOFTPENCIL THURSDAY this week because we are playing with the adorable new image - MICHU & RATINY GO TO SCHOOL!!  Make sure you visit SOFTPENCIL SHOP and check out all the AMAZING NEW IMAGES that are there as well as all the rest of Elizabeth's ADORABLE IMAGES!!  Also, stop by SOFTPENCIL BLOG to check out all the DT cards for the week as well as all the CHALLENGES being sponsored by SOFTPENCIL this week.  Finally, come chat with us and even pick up a FREEBIE or 2 over at SOFTPENCIL GROUP ON PCP

So this week, being inspired by the challenge at DIGITAL TUESDAY, which is to make a gift set, I made a gift set!
This set is a back to school set which I am going to give to one of my kids' babysitters who is starting college.  I have included a card, package of pencils and a composition book.  Not only will these all be GREAT for school, but they also tied in so well with the SOFTPENCIL IMAGE I used for the set.
For the card, I used the sketch from FRIDAY SKETCHERS and the color challenge from DIVA COFFEE BREAK DESIGNS which calls for SU red rose, baja breeze, not quite navy and river rock.  I embossed the top 3 colors with Cuttlebug EFs.  Buttons are from Denami Design.  Image is colored with Copics and Atyou Spicas, cut with nesties and daubed in SU rose red.  Sentiment is from Rubber Stampede stamped in SU rose red, cut with nesties, daubed with SU baja breeze and attached with brad from Basic Grey.

Both images colored with Copics and Atyou Spicas.  Image on pencil case is cut with nesties and daubed with SU rose red.  Button is Denami Designs, CS is SU rose red and DP is SEI.  Sketch from EAT, SLEEP, STAMP.  Composition Book image is cut using Quickutz die and Unity stamp stamped in Staz-on jet black ink is stamped right above the image.  I hope you like it, I'm really happy with the results!☺

The following challenges were also used for my projects:
INCY WINCY DESIGNS - back to school
FUSSY AND FANCY - back to school
