Learning is a Journey

Its the end of the school year so I wanted to make my daughters first teacher a card to thank her. I had a wonderful 'School Days' paper pack by Sugar & Spice Studio which was perfect and all papers were from this pack.

I used Tuesday Morning Sketch #228 as my starting block, and flipped it on the side. The twist on this challenge was to add 'a bell or snowman', and although it is tiny, there is a school bell on top of the school! The school image I used is from digital kit 'School Days' by Sweet Blossom Designs.

The Journey sentiment stamp is from Kaszazz, as well as the tag die I embossed and edged with Distressed Ink Bundled Sage. The paperclip paper is edged with Distress Ink Vintage Photo and blinged with Kindyglitz.

As this is an easel card, I die cut the heart on the inside of the card and folded it so that it would help to stand it up nicely. As a fluke I also managed to match up the papers so that the pattern carried on the inside of the card too!
