And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Thank a Teacher

Hello friends!  Another school year is coming to an end.  I just wanted to thank the many dedicated teachers out there who work tirelessly to provide outstanding educational experiences for the students in their classrooms!

Creative Nugget:  The Ways to Use It Challenge today on Splitcoaststampers was to use metal so out came some metallic card stock.  Alcohol inks were applied to one of the sheets from which the Teacher's Apples were die cut and the remaining piece was embossed for the background panel.  The small apple and the sentiment from the Seeds of Knowledge stamp set were stamped using Jet Black Archival Ink.  The clip of the clipboard, the paper clips, and the diagonal panel were cut from another piece of the gold metallic card stock.  Other custom dies from Our Daily Bread Designs used include: Notebook Paper Stamp & Die Duo, Clipboard Dies, Pierced Rectangles Dies, and the Lattice Background Die was used for the embossing.   The MOJO497 Sketch for this week was used for the design.

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:
MOJO Monday - MOJO497
Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge - ODBDSLC286 Just Say Thanks
Just Us Girls #393 - Use Inks to Make a Background
Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog - Anything Goes + a Sentiment
Tuesday Throwdown #343 Challenge - Texture

Thanks so much for stopping by and if you get a chance...thank a teacher!
