Love to Create Challenge #27 "Punches and Dies"

It's time again for a new Challenge at Love to Create Challenges.  This week we would like to see your entries using "Punches and Dies". Our wonderful sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps.
Bugaboo Stamps will be offering the winner of this Challenge a prize of 7 free digis of their choice. That's a wonderful prize and no better time to stock up on those images for Halloween and Christmas.
So for my card today I chose to use a cute and adorable image by Bugaboo called "Deacon - School Time". I chose this image since kids around here are getting ready to start back to school. Although I am not sure all of them are happy about
Since the theme for the Challenge this week is "Punches and Dies" I decided to cut my image out with a Spellbinder Die and then use some corner punches on my designer paper.  I used Copic Sketch Markers to color my image.
In my stash I found a crayon and ruler button along with some wonderful red, yellow and blue buttons. Also added a red bow and was done.
The inside was completed with the same papers and cardstock.  I love using Kraft Cardstock as my card base.  The sentiment reads, "Are you sure this is all you need!".  I added another button from my stash - a yellow school bus...
