nothing is impossible

Today I set out to make a card for someone who has just finished their teaching practicum at our school. It was tricky to figure out what kind of a sentiment I wanted on the card...thank you? congratulations? ... instead I went in a different direction of "dream big" and "nothing is impossible" now that she has almost completed her teaching degree. I finally got to play around with this fantastic hot pink foil my aunt sent me for my birthday and used it along with the Color Throwdown palette. I used the sketch over at Viva la Verve and included 3 brads to link up with the Heart2Heart challenge. I figured with the smooth texture of the foil and the bumpy embossed paper I could also link up with the "touchy feely" challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

  1. What a great way to encourage a soon-to-be teacher! Love the foil paper with the encouraging sayings on it and you managed to squeak in that "three" element (plus there are three words in your sentiment... Lovely card!
