Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #38

Today is the day!  It's my very first Freshly Made Sketches Design Team post!  I'm so excited!!  I am so honoured to be working with such a fabulous team!  Lesley and her Clean Team are so creative!  Today's sketch is from the very talented Linda Callahan!   I really enjoyed this week's sketch.  I don't do well with circles and ovals so today's rectangles were right up my alley!

I wanted to do a card for my son Caleb's teacher.  He has the most wonderful lady (Mrs. Cooper) that teaches 21 kids every Tuesday and Thursday.  She has given so much to these kids.  She works so hard with them and has gone above and beyond to help this very smart group of kids learn so much.  I truly believe that it takes a special person to be a teacher!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Real Red Glitter
Stamps: Teacher's Apple (PTI)
Ink: Real Red, Wild Wasabi, Basic Black
Other: Dimensionals, Spiral Punch, Basic Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Square Lattice Textured Embossing Folder

Thanks for stopping by!
Please check back tomorrow for my very first Merry Monday challenge card!!!  It will be Christmas in June!
