Anyone For Anya ~ Vintage Vibes

This week over at Anyone for Anya the challenge is Vintage Vibes so with that in mind I decided to keep my colour pallette to the E colours with my copics.  I found a suitable piece of paper from the DCWV Neutrals pad and then I heat embossed some leaves on it using versamark and clear powder, I really like this effect but dont do it often enough.  As this is going to be for my September page of my calendar I went with a back to school theme and thougt that the Anya image from the Spotlight collection looked a bit like she was in school unifrom.  I used my new triangle punch to make the flag from a scrap of paper and stamped 'back to class' on it and fixed it to a 'berry pin'.  I distressed the edge of the paper which doesnt really show that well in the picture and then added a folde flower and a little wooden flower to one corner and finished off with a wooden button rucksack to which I added 3d glaze.

I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:
