Paper Smooches SPARKS--Thanks Teacher

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my card for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! *** 

This week's Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge is an Anything Goes challenge.  Since tomorrow is my first official day at work at my new school, I put together a simple school themed design for the challenge.

Thanks Teacher card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Paper Smooches
I used the School Icons die set to make a pencil for my card.  After die cutting the pieces from a bunch of cardstock scraps, I assembled the pencil.  I used foam tape to adhere it to a kraft card base that I'd covered with a pair of patterned paper panels and a coordinating solid cardstock strip.  The "thanks teacher" sentiment from the Smarty Pants set was stamped in gray ink on the notebook lined patterned paper.

Don’t miss what the rest of the SPARKS team has created this week. Here’s where to find them:
