A Belle Birthday

Hello. Today I'm sharing a birthday card I made for Sophie's teacher, Ms. Crystal. She is seriously one of the nicest teachers at her school and a sweet, sweet person. We just found out that she is a Disney fan (whoot woo) and her favorite princess is Belle - so she ranks high on our list of super cool peeps.

I had this Belle image left over from Sophie's birthday cupcakes. I then used the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #318 (see below) and choose papers and colors that coordinated with Belle. The floral paper is from DCWV Fresh Floral Stack and has a slight vintage flair to it. I used some pink and brown ink to distress the edges and age it a bit.

The flowers were part of a $1 pack from Michael's. I really love finds like that, they don't cost much but yet they can be added to almost anything. Belle is on a polka dot tag with a yellow tag underneath for a shadow effect. I distressed the tag as well.

Here is the sketch...there's still a bit of time to play.

Have a great day....thanks for stopping by!

  1. Cherish those good teachers, and they will love the special thought put into not only a handmade card, but one that is specifically partial to their interest! This turned out darling! I know she loved it!

  2. The teacher will LOVE this! My 15 YO is still a huge Disney princess fan, and probably always will be, like Ms. Crystal.

  3. Aren't WE all Disney fans? (LOL) This is a perfect card for Sophie's teacher! I love the background paper with Belle!


Thank you for your kind comment, I love hearing from you! =)
