Best Teacher!

With the end of school in sight and our Crafty Creations challenge being a great color combo this week, this card was born!  I need a few teacher cards for “thank you’s” and this one will be for my son’s kindergarten teacher.  The Crafty Creations challenge theme set by Georgia is to make a card in black and white with a splash of red!  I love this combo, because it can be so elegant, or it can be striking and theatrical, or simply bold and fun!  The DT did a great job of showing all these styles I think, so pop on over for some inspiration!

I used my Cricut to cut the boy/chalkboard silhouette and the book icon from “A Child’s Year”.  I get so much use out of the cartridge!!  So, I am also entering this into Speedy’s Friends challenge to make a silhouette card.

The chalkboard words are from  a set called Homeroom by the Paper Company Studio, and Imaginisce snag ’em stamps.   The background stamp and the “thank you” behind the book are from Flourishes LLC.  (Thank you set  for the script and Seaside Life for the small thank you)

The red panel is embossed with the script cuttlebug A2 folder.

Thanks so much for  your kind comments on the flower tutorial I posted last week!  I found out that I won the FTTC flower challenge which inspired it too!! 🙂  Check out their new challenge HERE.

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day!!
