The back to school project I decided to make is a card showing school spirit!  I love this image from Mo Manning called "Gimme a Bee' - makes me want to yell 'GO TEAM'. 
She's colored with COPIC markers, cut out with scalloped circles dies from LifeStyle Craft (fka QuicKutz) in various sizes.  The letters were die cut and stamped using Lawn Fawn's 'Quinn's ABCs' and colored with COPIC markers.  The orangey-yellow scallop was run through my Big Shot machine using the 'Dots' embossing folder from Cuttlebug.

Here's a close up of the main image
