Clever Girl! I'm full of Admiration!

It's the 19th and the time when we set a new challenge at One Stitch At A Time (OSAAT) and our theme this week is anything Goes with Daughters/Girls. This was perfect for me as I was asked to make a card for a very clever young lady who eventually wants to become a lawyer.   It seems her parents are confident that she will pass her exams so now they are prepared. Nothing frilly or fancy was the request.

This image by Ken Benner seemed perfect and you can find it here.

I found a odd piece of paper that fitted the colours of card that I chose and covered the front of a plain card. I cut a bunting shape from Spellbinders Baby Buntings die that came over from the US. A plain  and scallop Spellbinders square cut the image shapes. No flowers at all which was hard but I understood!!

Fabulous card. Cute image and just perfect for the card. Great card. I find it hard also to do simple cards with no frills. Maggie - DT Teamie
