You're a Peach!

Tuesday, May 8, 2012

Hi Friends! My DD wanted to give her teacher a gift for teacher appreciation week, so, of course, I just had to make a card for the occasion, also. 


I love mixing dp's, and the Viva la Verve May 2012 Week 2 sketch is a good one for that.

And, this pretty color palette is perfect for peaches!
I found a peach-scented candle that smells heavenly, so I used a Flourishes peach stamp set to make a coordinating card. I meant to add three staples above the image, but forgot to do it before I glued everything together, darn it!


My DD had a really good 2nd grade year, so I left plenty of room for her to thank her teacher and sign her name. :)

Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful week!

I'll be entering this card in the following challenges:
