School Time! - Pilin' On the Primary Colors

This week at the Pile It On Challenge our theme is Primary Colors (as the main colors) and we're sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps. They have some of my favorite school-themed images, so I made this Joy Fold Card for two of our nieces:

I used two of my favorite DPs (can't remember who they are by... Jillibean? October Afternoon?).
The small card was cut with a Spellbinders/PageMaps die. One of the notebook-edge borders is cut with a Die-namics die and the other is from an actual notebook! The bottom border was cut from DP with decorative scissors, and I punched the holes with my Crop-O-Dile.

The sentiment is a rubber stamp from Hero Arts, and the stars were heat-embossed in gold using a handmade wood-and-cork stamp. The flowers were cut/embossed from a SU! paper on my BigShot. I colored the adorable Bugaboo digi stamps with Copic markers. The sun paperclip is from my stash, and I added a scrap of red raffia to it. The gold spiral in the flower is also a paperclip. I used an actual mini-notebook sheet for the message section on the back.
