Polkadoodles Anything Goes Craft & Card Making Challenge

I'm beginning to feel a bit more at home now with my stint as Guest Designer for the Polkadoodles Anything Goes blog challenge. Well maybe still a little nervous as this is only the second time! 

The DT were asked to create a shaped card and I went with a circle shape supported by rectangles on either side. It's very easy to construct with a partial cutting of the circle from a rectangle of card. Then a die cut circle is placed over to cover up any wonky cutting.

As back to school was on my mind I used the Student/School Little Dude and Cupcake on a Pile of Books digis . One of my sons had just been telling me about how he'd used a Zoom meeting to get my grandson's feet measured for new school shoes as he didn't want to take him to the shop in these strange times. Incredible what can be done on the internet these days!

I snipped off the cupcake as it didn't really fit with my theme. The yellow paper I used is from a Polkadoodles pad -  Butterfly Daisy and the chalkboard paper is included with the digi image.

Colours: Copic, R2O, R27, R29, R39, Y35, Y38, E00, E21, E31, E33, E37, E50, E70, B93, B95, B97, C0, C1, C3, C5, C7 ; Miya oil pencils

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
