CPS106 and vintage school images

Happy Saturday! CPS106 challenge meets vintage school image...they play so nicely together don't they? This amazing vintage school image comes from Cora at Clearly Vintage. See the post here. Every Saturday Cora generously posts scans of authentic vintage photos and such to share with everyone. She recently held a blog candy drawing and asked for what kind of images we'd like to see...I said vintage school images....and I was a LUCKY winner of her blog candy stamp set Glamour Girls!! and these school images were posted at my request! How double sweet is she?!? I hope everyone takes a moment to check out her blog and Etsy shop. I can't wait to make something glamorous when her girls arrive :) Thank you Cora!

As for the CPS sketch....this is what inspired my card layout. There are some gorgeous be-ribboned and flowered examples over there but I took a less whimsical approach to this sketch...which is odd for me but I am liking the way my card turned out. I love how you can start with a sketch and turn it into something else! I guess that's the point huh? Supplies:
