Bloom Where You're Planted


Today is the last day of school!!  My 3rd grade daughter had the best teacher ever this year.  I love her to pieces and wanted to create a special thank you card for her.  Her classroom decor is a "garden" where the students bloom and grow.  She has a banner that says "Bloom Where You are Planted" so I knew I wanted to use this sentiment.

The poppies were inked with yellow and the edges were inked, rock and roll style, with Orange Zest.  I love how they turned out.

I based my card on the Card Patterns sketch this week:


I'm also entering this into the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge #92 to use something new since I just got the anniversary set in my hands.  This is the first image I inked up:)
