This thank you card was a little bit different to the others as it was a thank you to a teacher who was also going on maternity leave!

The little girl's school uniform is navy so I used SU Concord Crush cardstock as my base, but I thought that was too dark on its own and as the teacher had not announced whether she was expecting a boy or a girl I decided on lemon as the second colour.

The lady is a Sizzix die, cut out using scraps of paper from my stash, mounted on a piece of patterned paper from the first Tatty Teddy /Me To You range, edged with Barely Banana (retired) SU ink. The same ink was used to edge the borders which I was sent as a free gift with some items I bought from a blog sale. The roses I picked up from a sale basket at The Craft Bug in Chirk and edged them with some Iced Stickles in Lemon Ice.
