Thank you card for a teacher

Good morning crafters!  Today I have a card I made for my son's teacher.  Being a teacher is such an important job and I think it's important to take time to show my appreciation for all her hard work.

I created the beautiful wood look in my card by embossing Premium White Cardstock with Crafter's Companion new Wood Grain Background Embossing Folder.  I used Vintage Photo  and Tea Dye Distress Ink pads to create the warm brown color.

For the main image, I thought Swalk Slugs and Snails would be perfect for an elementary school teacher.  I colored him using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers (IB2, IB3, BT8, IG1, IG6, IG8, IG10, TN5, TN7, TN8, EB1, EB2, CT1, CT3, AND TB2).

To finish my card, I added a small piece of ribbon and stamped "Thank You" on matching cardstock.  The Thank You sentiment is part of the Cute Companions Crafting Companions stamp set.  Inside my card, I added the words, "Thanks for making 4th grade such a blast!".

I hope that I have inspired you to thank a teacher in your life.  I'm sure they would appreciate a handmade card.  Have a fabulous Thursday!
