Thanks Teacher!

I used the Color Challenge combo at Splitcoaststampers and the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Club sketch for this teacher appreciation card.  School's in Britian don't get out until the very end of June so I'm ahead of the game!
The color challenge colors are Lucky Limeade, Pool Party and Peach Parfait.  I colored this little Pure Innocence cutie called Book in Hand with copics and paper pieced her sweater (or jumper as they're called here!) and skirt.
When I look at this image it reminds me of a photo of myself on the first day of school - I was wearing a dress instead but I had hair just like this with a little hairclip!
I used MFT's Simply Scallops Die-namic for edging one of the panels.  The Dizzy Doily Die-namic made the circular background for the alphabet which was cut with By the Letters Die-namic's - they're fantastic, I love those little letters!
Supplies include:
My Minds Eye dp
SU Lucky Limeade cardstock
Sewing machine
October Afternoon buttons
