Another teacher thank you card

Hi all

Here is the second teacher thank you card, this time it is for my daughters teacher Mrs Saeed who my daughter describes as "dresses fancy" LOL! She is a lovely teacher and my daughter has really come out of her shell whilst under the guidance of Mrs Saeed!

I also decorated the inside and adapted a teacher poem to incorporate the teachers "self confessed love of bling" LOL!!!

The backing papers were free with a craft magazine, orange polka dot ribbon papermania, Magnolia Tilda with slate stamped image coloured with pro markers and whispers pens, green ribbon reused from Lush gift wrapped packaging, prima flowers, "rose", sentiment and everything else from my ever growing stash!!! Oh, almost forgot nestabilities frames 1 and scalloped circle.

I am entering this card into a few challenges this week:

Trimcraft - Sketch challenge
Trimcraft weekly challenge - Recycled (reused ribbon from a package from Lush)
Just Magnolia - Buttons
Pile it On - Mostly orange and combine with at least one other challenge
Allsorts challenge blog - one of anything
2 red bananas - "Reduce, Recycle and Reuse" (again I reused the green ribbon from a bath bomb gift wrapped package from Lush - the ribbon still smells all yummy LOL)
365 cards - You raise me up!

Thanks for looking!
