Thank You Teacher!

Happy Sunday all!
Fed up of me yet today???
Where did that week go??
We were off & had a couple of days away, did a few things & then woosh, here we are Sunday again!
On to business then!
This week at The Crafty Pad it's Challenge #123 & we have a recipe for you!
Use 3DP's, 2 Ribbons & 1 flower! get it? 123 lol
Here without further ado is my card!

We are sponsored this week by the lovely Michelle over at Michelle's Scraps

Michelle is very kindly offering a $15 gift voucher for her store

With half term coming up, we the DT ladies were asked to use one of the fab
Incidentally there is a sale on at The Crafty Pad Designs, at the moment!

 30% off all the FAB Digi Stamps 
The sale runs until the 2nd June so be sure to get on over & stock up on all your digi stamps!
I have once again opted for an easel card! Somebody stop me!!! lol
I used white linen textured card from Southfield Stationers for my base card.

The layout was my own & the papers are digital from the Two Peas In A set from 
I printed the image & the sentiment at actual size! 
I used promarkers to colour & matted the image onto some coordinating card! I used a corner punch to give a bit of detail!
The papers were all matted & layered on to coordinating card too!

Now technically you could say I used two flowers but as I have layered them I'm counting them as one!

I wrapped my first ribbon round the easel section & secured by tying a bow. I than added the flower on top with some pinfliar glue. The centre of the flower is a piece of card candy!

I cut out the sentiment with my Nellie Snellen Frames die the matted onto a piece of coordinating card which was cut out using a scalloped circle nestie.
The stop was the whole matted & layered section at the front of the easel base.
The second ribbon was intended to make the sentiment section look like a tag & I threaded it through one of the holes on the frame shape but clumsy old me pulled too hard & burst the section! At that point I decided to cut my losses & add it as a bow!
Thanks for looking at my card! I do hope you like it! 
It's for my great niece to give to her nursery teacher at the end of  term as she goes up to big school then!
Hope you can find time to enter the challenge over at The Crafty Pad this week!
