Report Card Time

I don't think I would mind getting a report card like this... I had originally thought to make this a tag but the size would have required a tag card and I loved the report card image. So it just turned into a card. The background is from a package of goodies I purchased and I think it is 7 Gypsies Ephemera.



I was playing around with my Hero Arts Silhouette Grass and decided to use the report card background. The Grass is stamped with toffee mixed with vintage sepia. The dragonflies are from the Antique Engravings set from Hero Arts as well. They are stamped using a light green dye ink and I added some distress stickles. The bodies are Memory Box pearls and they are the perfect golden color to match the Toffee. The lace along the top is Stampers Anonymous and in the same lovely green dye ink.



Hope you have a lovely Sunday and that it is peaceful.

    You really rocked it! Love how you made it more vintage - less floral. :)
