#1 Teacher


2 challenges inspired today's card...

Festive Friday // #FF130 ...An inspo list challenge!!  We have been given a list of 10 items in honor of International Children's Book Day.  Our challenge is to use 3 items from the inspo list as our inspiration for our 3 are patterned paper (yellow die cut star), ABC (ABC sticker), and splatters (stamped in blue).  I decided that a thank you card for a teacher was a fitting theme.  Our teachers have it rough and need to hear our thanks!!

Inspire.Create.Challenge // #ICC139 ...A sketch challenge!!  I switched out the heart for a star and used washi tape for my diagonal lines.  Fun sketch for my thank you card.
