School Days

This week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge theme is "School Days", and my card includes two very personal elements: the building is my own school that I attended for 9 years at the age of 10 to 19 in the 70s and early 80s, and the pupil on the right is my father on his first school day about 1931. All other elements are from Manuela Zimmermann and the ColorSplash kit from Mischief Circus.

Ich mag es immner sehr, wenn Persönliches in Karten eingebunden ist, das gelingt dir immer gut.
