Without a Microscope

I made this card for several challenges:
The first is for One Layer Wednesday - to make a one layer card inspired by your favorite subject.  Well, I am a sixth grade science teacher  . . . (and it is  my favorite subject!). 
My school term starts in one week.  I can't wait to start.  I've already been up to school 3 days to set up my class room.  So exciting!!

I also wanted to incorporate the challenge from Less is More which is "Tearing".  I accomplished this into a one-layer card, by masking torn paper. 

I used the colors from the CR84FN Color challenge which were aqua, kraft, and white. 

I followed the sketch from Sketch Frenzy Friday , while I don't have "texture" on the top portion, I am hoping that the "text" background will suffice.

Creative Card Crew's challenge is to use script, or newsprint, or maps. 

  • microscope and paper clips: Gina K Designs
  • sentiment: Sweet and Sassy
  • text background: unknown
  • inks: Stampin Up and PTI chai and chamomile
Thanks for looking.
