PPPR: Back to School Blog Hop!

Good morning and welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Back to School Blog Hop! 

If you've just hopped over from Candace's blog, then you're hopping in the right direction. If you've just stumbled across my blog this morning, head on over to Lisa's blog to start at the beginning!
Today we are focusing on back to school! My kiddos don't actually start school until September 3rd, but I'm sure most of you and your kiddos are now settling into the routine. I decided to create a card for my blog hop project today! I used the school bus from the Back 2 School cutting files.
I created the base of my card using a ticket shape from the Silhouette Online Store. It's kind of like a "ticket to ride" for the first day! :)
I also used some clear cardstock to make the windows look a little more realistic! The PaperTrey Ink Clear cardstock cuts perfectly in the cameo. :)
