August IAR Color Challenge "Back to School"

There's a new IAR Color Challenge just posted over at the I Am Roses Challenge Blog. If you want to win some beautiful flowers check it out and create to win.

The theme for this month's challenge is "Back to School". I decided to dress up a paper lunch bag. Fill it up with snacks or some school supplies for your kid. That big gardenia is new to I Am Roses, it measures at 4". I used some two tone yellow roses and added some red roses as well.

The calendar month "august" is embossed on acetate with white embossing powder. I draped some banner border stickers at the fold. The letter "A" is the initial for the receiver of this paper bag. The yellow ruler ribbon was perfect for the school theme.

Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to see all the submissions created by you guys. GOOD LUCK everyone!!
