rockin' teacher card

please click image for a larger view!

i made this card for a teacher at my daughter's school (she's not my daughter's primary teacher, who got the magic card) but this teacher helps out and does a lot of activities with my daughter's class, so i thought it would be nice to remember her for teacher appreciation week too. this particular teacher is super cute and fun, with amazing style so this cheeky rockabilly girl from the greeting farm was the perfect stamp choice.

i stamped her onto an MFT perfect paper panel with memento tuxedo black ink & colored her in with copics. i had to add a little belly button bling too with a tiny swarovski crystal i also added some glossy accents to her shoes so they looked 'patent leather'. found some oldie but rockin' paper with skulls & cherries (creative imaginations, caution girl line) in my stash that was perfect to put behind the cut out, popped up image, along with some silver metal star brads.

here's a peek at it upside down so you get a better look at the glossy shoes & dimension: please click to enlarge images!

i cut the card base out of black cardstock with my scalloped nesties, and the circles were also cut out with nesties. i paper pierced small holes in each scallop along the card base and finished off the inside with a simple white cardstock scalloped circle, and an awesome 'You Rock' sentiment from MFT's Tweeny Tween Rock On/Pure Innocence set:

Ms. Jen totally LOVED it (i was so glad!) along with the gerbera daisy plant we potted for her. i am lovin making these little round cards- you gotta try some!!
thanks for looking!

in other news, we are all sick at the same time with insane allergies and headcolds (from the allergies no doubt)- Mimi got it first, gave it to me, who then passed it along to the hubs, so now within a week or so we're all runny nosed (& at other times congested), itchy eyes & throat, sickie sounding people! i'm the hand washing drill sergeant around here LOL! thankfully none of us are running fevers, or feeling too bad- but i so hope it'll warm up & everything will stop blooming soon- LOL- NEVER thought i'd wish for the 100's+ ;)
