Teacher Thank You

School starts here next week and I'm looking forward to a good year for my soon to be 2nd grader!  He will have a great teacher and I think we are all ready for school to start (whether he admits it or not). 

So, I decided to make a school themed card for the new Papertrey Paperdolls Challenge #17 hosted by Lisa V.  The challenge she issued was to make a card based on Dawn McVey's card and to use any new products from last month's Papertrey release.

Here's my card:

It's hard to see but I used the Book Print Impression plate on the aqua piece and the canvas impression plate on the red scalloped piece.

Here was Dawn's inspiration piece that we were working from:

  1. Thank you! I have been waiting for a new post! hehe! LOVE the card! That color combo is awesome! I can't believe Mason will be in 2nd grade! Where has the time gone?

  2. BEAUTIFUL gf.. love love your creations... !!!

  3. When I saw this challenge, I thought how am I going to do those stripes but I like how you just used Dawn's "layout" for your inspiration! I may have to look at this challenge a little differently now!! Great card Jen!!

  4. Nice job on this! I love how you utilized the mat.

  5. This is really cute, Jen! I love the color you chose - that bold red looks great with the pastels.

  6. Very pretty, Jen! Great colors!

  7. Jen, I love your color combo. I also really like how Mat Stack 3 is used in this card. Fantastic job.

  8. This is sooooo pretty! I made a card last night using the very same colors!! Great minds think alike. :)

  9. This is so CUTE! Great job on the challenge!!
    Have a GREAT weekend!

  10. My oldest starts 2nd grade next week, and she can't wait...I'm so not ready for my big helper to be gone, however. This card is absolutely perfect! I need to figure out what to do for my daughter's teacher...she has a 'Mr.' this year for the first time. Here's hoping it all goes well!

  11. Jen, I always forget that one can cut out Mat Stacks with patterned paper! Thanks for the reminder with your lovely back-to-school card!
