CAS-ual Fridays and Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #64


In an effort to combine challenges (because I'm the s-l-o-w-e-s-t card maker out there), I worked on a card this weekend that combined Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #64 and CAS-ual Friday's Challenge #19: Falling to Pieces.  This card is not your traditional fallish card, no leaves or pumpkins here.   

Instead I went with a back to school card for my twin boys (see those two mischievous boys in the middle of the bus?).  I even included some of their buddies!  I customized some of the Waltzingmouse stamps with glasses and longer hair, but wouldn't it be awesome if WMS had an add-on stamp set with girls!?!
I started off with a regular card but shaved off about an inch from the front.  I used an anywhere square punch for the windows.  The wheels of the bus (go round and round) are stamped from two window stamps from the Half Pint Heroes set.  Don't they make cute wheels? 
Lastly, I added a curved banner flapping in the wind!  Thought that sentiment was perfect for the first day of school. 
Lots of fun to make for my best boys!  Thanks for looking!
