Adding Sunshine

For this card I am playing along with 2 challenges...the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the Creative Confetti challenge over at Power Poppy.

The sketch this week is a fun one! I embossed a white background and then used a die to cut out my image panel, using the clear stamp set Loving Tulips from Power Poppy. I love yellow tulips so that's the color I decided to go with for my flowers and then I used some yellow patterned paper from my stash against all the white and to carry the yellow theme through. I went with a gray card base, pulling the gray from the vase.

The theme over at Creative Confetti is to plant kindness....."use the word kind in your creation or create something with kindness in mind i.e. thinking of you, just because, etc.". I'm acknowledging the kindness I received from one of the teachers from the school I work at....I'm a night custodian for the school district and after the big earthquake on Nov.30 my original school was severely damaged so we had to move next door to the high school and combine grades 6-12. This meant a whole new routine and classrooms to care for after over 7 yrs of my routine at the middle school. The high school art room is one of my rooms now and the other day the teacher left me a very sweet handmade gift and a lovely card thanking me for the work on her room. I was very touched and wanted to her know what a bright spot that was for me, so I made this card to thank her for her kindness!
