"Thanks Teacher" Card

Yes the school year will be over soon so the designers over at Card A Day Blog are showing "Teacher Appreciation" cards all this week.  Today my card is featured. 

Base:  Kraft Cardstock (4.25" x 11")
Digital Image:  "School Girl" from Paper Squirrel
Scraps:  Red  (3.5" x 3.5") and Blue (1" x 4")
Ribbon:  Ruler (3")
Die Cuts:  My Minds Eye
Misc:  Scrap Kraft Cardstock, Letter Stickers, Eyelets, Water Color Pencils, Water Pen, Adhesives

I printed the digital stamp onto a scrap piece of Kraft, colored with watercolor pencils/water pen and cut out.  Next I adhered all the elements to the card base as shown. 
Tip:  the ribbon was a scrap (love to use up my scraps!) which I trimmed on the card edge.  To keep it from fraying, I ran a thin bead of Glossy Accents along the cut edge.
Finally I placed the lettering and eyelets.


This card is entered into the following Challenges:
