Back to School Bart - Whimsy August Release

Whimsy is having a blog hop to showcase the new August digi releases, which begins today and ends on Monday, August 08, 2011 at 12 Noon EST.  The digital images are available for purchase now.
This is Back to School Bart and that little dragon just makes me smile.  I made the card with a special little boy in mind to celebrate his first day of kindergarten this fall.  Since this is such a momentous occasion, I think there may also be a few $$$$ added in with the card to sweeten the deal.  I coloured the image with Copics and distressed all the edges.  The stars are a Sizzix die with the cut centers out and the papers are Bo Bunny and the brads are Basic Grey.
You should have arrived at my blog after visiting Antoinette.   Make sure you leave a comment as you do your hopping because there are two random blogs chosen to select a winner for a mini prize of a digi of your choice. As the grand prize winner, you will receive 5 of the new digital stamps of your choice and.... you will also get a chance to use those new digi images as a guest designer for Whimsy for the entire month of August!  Very cool!
Details of the hop and the complete blog stop order are found on the Whimsy Inspiration Blog. Have fun and remember to check out each stop because the design team has some great inspiration for you to check out.  Your next stop is Alissa.
Challenges:
Craft Us Crazy - Anything Goes
