Cute Card Thursday Challenge - "Thank You Miss"

Todays card is for this weeks Cute Card Thursday Challenge - a thank you card for the teacher. As all my children have children of their own, I will have to send this to one of my granddaughters to pass on to their teachers. Anyway Ive used one of the Tilda stamps, and in this one shes dressed in her school uniform and carrying a slate. Ive stamped her onto white card, and then masked her to stamp the pile of books behind. I then coloured her using my copic pens, after which I have used my Polka Dot Nestabilitie die to cut her out. Then used it again on some blue textured card and with the die still in place Ive used some white ink to stencil through the holes.

The base card is a 8"x 8" white card, onto which I have layered up a piece of pale blue pearlescent card and again used the Nitwit downloads, the first one is a lovely check pattern, on top of this I have used a further two more patterns and with my flourish Martha Stewart border punch, created two layers with them. The top mount is another piece of the blue pearlescent card, but Ive used one of the new Cuttlebug embossing folders on it, and then stuck a piece of brodiary angliese along the edge of it, then on the two outer edges Ive stuck thin grosgrain ribbon.

Ive then printed a greeting from my computer and layered it up with a piece of the same blue card that I used for the frame, this was layered up with some foam tape and stuck at the bottom right hand side. The mounted image was then stuck on to the base card.

I then punched out with my flourish punches some swirls and stuck them down the left hand side, and in between them Ive stuck four flowers. The final thing is the pearl gems stuck down the right hand side.
