School is around the corner

 Another week to play along as a guest with the Addicted to CAS team and the challenge is SCHOOL.  I sure don't want to even have to think this way but the time has arrived for moms and dads and kids to think about back to school.  I don't want summer to end so I pretty much refuse to admit its that time but I do love that theme so it was fun to create a card for the challenge.
 Plus I get to pull out one of my favorite stamp sets by Reverse Confetti.  I so love that  adorable apple.  
I wanted my card to be super quick and very CAS so I went to a favorite technique and that is to use an assortment of Washi or Paper Tapes.  I grabbed three patterns that went together nicely and it took me seconds to add strips of these tapes to my card.  Then the card was finished off with my stamps and I also used the matching dies.  
Be sure to check out what the rest of the Addicted to CAS team created for this challenge and take the time to play along.
My card fits the Freshly Made sketch.  It is a very simple sketch so I added in extra goodies.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
