Enjoy every moment!

My daughter's teacher is finishing up this Friday (NT schools have one week holiday next week). She is going home to Queensland to have her baby! I wanted to make a card that was a combination of Thank You (she has been fabulous this year and Charis loves her) and Good Luck. What do you think? Have I done it?

The base cardstock is Blue Bayou. I used the stamp set Enjoy Every Moment. I stamped the dotted circle from this set randomly around the edge of the base card. I stamped the "enjoy" in Blue Bayou on Soft Sky, replacing the "o" with the large flower image (which was inked in Soft Sky and then rolled in Blue Bayou - I did this 3 times until I was happy with the result). The centre of the flower has been punched out using the 3/4" circle punch. I then used the Glitter Window technique to give some sparkle. The main image was then mounted on Groovy Guava (the bottom of which I stamped using the small flower image in Groovy Guava ink) which in turn was mounted on DSP from the Secret Garden Scrappin' Kit. I stamped "every moment" in Blue Bayou on Soft Sky and punched it with the Word Window punch. The edges of all the cardstock were sponged with the matching colour ink and sponge daubers.

I hope that Mrs Read likes this card. I spent ages coming up with the design - or at least translating it from the picture in my head to real life. I'm very happy with the result.

Oh I love it! I'm sure she will too. How cute to make the "o" a flower. Think I'll have to case that idea.

I love the color combo! And I agree with Michelle. Very clever of the flower O. Too cute.
