Of the Earth Thanks

Good Sunday morning!

Today's card is a thank you note for my kids' Music teacher from elementary school. I was lucky enough to be the chairman of the 5th Grade Banquet committee for my daughter's class this past school year. We raised lots of money, and we had some left when all the receipts had been paid. The committee met at the beginning of the summer to decide what to do with the excess. We left some for next year's committee and the rest we decided to donate to the music program. That way all the kids will benefit. Tomorrow morning we are surprising the music teacher (who is fabulous BTW) at school. The principal has been hiding the equipment in her office. LOL I can't wait to see her face!

I used the Big Shot and the Scalloped Oval Frame die to make a mask for the So Saffron background. The butterfly is from one of the stamps in the set. I just colored it with a marker to omit the rest of the image.

Enjoy what's left of your weekend!

Supplies(all SU!): Stamps- Of the Earth (Hostess Level 1). Ink- So Saffron, Chocolate Chip. Paper- Whisper White, Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip. Accessories- Big Shot, Scalloped Oval Frame die, Chocolate Chip polytwill (retired), sponge dauber.
