To The Best Teaching Assistant Ever

I teach young children to swim and from time to time I have someone to assist me.  It is good to have a Thank You card or two in my stash for these occasions.  This one would be for someone who does an exceptional job in assisting me.

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch
Two Sisters - Make your own embellishments (Flowers)

I have used a couple of papers from my scrapbooking stash - these were 30cm x 30cm sheets which I cut into quarters.  The sentiment comes from Digi Stamp Boutique and has been die-cut with a Spellbinder oval then matted onto brown cardstock from Rosie's Studio.  I made some flower embellishments using some textured scrap paper and a Marianne's die.  The thing about this die is that you roll the flower yourself so that the flowers all end up different - just as they are in nature!  I also added some pearls from Rosie's Studio.

The sketch that I followed is this one from Sweet Sketch Wednesday:
which as you can see I rotated to work better with the sentiment.
