The Challenge 36-Teacher Thank You

The Challenge is back again with a new challenge!  This week we've got a theme challenge--celebrating teachers.  This one is definitely close to my heart!

Teacher Thank You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from SugarPea DesignsI used the current Deconstructed Sketch and the fun Teacher's Pet set from SugarPea Designs to put together my school themed thank you.  I took some inspiration from the pencil covered container and stamped a panel full of pencils.  Mine are brightly colored, courtesy of my Copic markers. To go with the teacher theme, I layered the pencil panel on a piece of patterned paper covered with letters.  I tucked a bold yellow fishtail flag strip underneath the bottom edge of the image panel, then topped it with the "thank you" sentiment.  Another yellow fishtail flag strip was adhered to the very top of the patterned paper panel.

I matted the panel with coordinating green cardstock, then adhered it to a yellow card base to match the fishtail flag accents.  A few yellow enamel dots completed the design.
