A Special Thank You

Happy Tuesday,

Well our weather is holding steady; we could possibly hit 80 degrees on Thursday. My husband and I actually ate outside for dinner tonight. So totally not a March activity in the North East.

I made this card for a special teacher. She was kind enough to let me come and observe her room. And then ask a lot of questions. She teaches pre k. The kids were very cute. It was a fun morning. I had a lot of fun making this card!

Here is what I used:
Magnolia Stamp- Study Tilda with glasses
Copic Markers
Silver Glitter Pen
Gold Spica Pen
Tim Holtz Muse Token - Knowledge
Red & White Twine
Jolees Embellishments
Small envelope
White Glitter
Paper from my stash
Walnut Stain Distress Ink

Here is a close up of Tilda:

Tilda was colored with Copic Markers. I used the silver glitter pen for the frames on her glasses. I put some white glitter on her wings to give her a little glam. All the edges of the paper were inked with the Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I popped Tilda and the preschool chalk board with tape. You are able to remove the alphabet stack from the small envelope. I added a few embellies to the inside of the card too.

Here is the inside of the card:

I am entering this card in the Magnolia-Licious Highlites-"Moves & Grooves"
