My card was created for one of my Granddaughter's Kindergarten teachers.  I used one of my favorite stamp sets from SugarPea Designs-Teacher's Pet.  I colored this adorable little bear with a variety of Copic Markers and fussy cut him.  I love his happy little face!  

My base card is Whisper White (5 1/2 x 4 1/4).  The next layer is Real Red (5 1/4 x 4).  I used my stitched rectangle dies to cut the school paper by October Afternoon.  (Schoolhouse).  I cut a smaller black rectangle with a smaller stitched die and stamped the sentiment with Versa Mark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I sponged a little white on the black paper to make it look like a chalkboard.  I adhered the little bear with diminsionals and found these three buttons in my jar to add to the card.  Black Baker's twine was tied in the buttons.  

A matching envelope and and a special note of thanks was added along with a gift card!  I am very thankful for all teachers do each day! 

I hope you enjoyed my card today.  Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.  I LOVE to hear from you! 

Wishing you a fabulous week!
