Schooled Thanks!

Oops!!!  Did I forget Boss' Day??  This week has been a busy one at school, lots of field trips, a blood drive to run and kids getting their hearing checked tomorrow.  But I cannot forget my principal, who is an amazing boss.  This week's Freshly Made Sketch is perfect for a masculine card.  

Here is my take on this sketch complete with a bit of a school theme-

I love the orangy tones with gray so paired Cajun Craze with Basic Gray dsp from the Storytime dsp pack.  I die cut Soft suede with an Apothecary die and made a banner in Whisper White, adding a sentiment from Trendy Trees.  The leaves are from Lovely as a Tree, stamped in Stazon Brown and watercolored with an aquapainter.  I created a tone on tone background on the top third of the card using strips of Cajun Craze paper.  The leaves are popped up on dimensionals.  I love dimensionals!

Here's to hoping my principal likes this card!  I hope you like it as well!
Have a wonderful week,

Lee Ann  :)
