Oldie But A Goodie Challenge - School's Out

Good morning everyone.

This is my last card as GDT for Oldie but a Goodie.  Thanks for having me :0)

The theme is School's Out, so I made a thank you card for my son to use on his last day.  We will probably make a cute little bracelet to go with it.

Remember that something on your card has to be 6 months old.  My pearl gems, card and paper are 6 months old.

Here is my card....

Well I showed this card to my son and told him I made this for his teacher and he was horrified.  He said he can't give this because it's got a flower on it lmao!!  I explained his teacher is female so she would love the flower.  He just wasn't buying into that, so I will print out a cool Kenny K image for him to make his own card (no flowers!).  He's only not long turned 8 and wants to look cool and to him this card is not cool - it's so funny really.  I wasn't expecting all this until he was 10!

This cute little image is from Crafty Sentiments and the papers are a mix of Echo Park 12 x 12 and Papermania 12 x 12.

I punched my butterflies and added pearl gems to the centre of them and the flower.  The sentiment is computer generated.
