A Back to school challenge

As Ivonne mentioned on her post from September 10th, some time ago her daughter gave us a back to school challenge with rules, some rules, and then more rules :) I was finally able to finish my card celebrating the beginning of her senior year. To Mo: Enjoy your last year of high school and the memories you will make and treasure for a lifetime!

Forever dancing in my heart

Hello ladies! Today’s card is a very special one. It is for the most important person in my life, my precious daughter.  She is growing up so fast, she turned 17 two weeks ago. What can I say about her?  She is an incredible human being, a great daughter, a lovely granddaughter ,a sweet niece,  a loyal friend, an excellent student…OMG, she has so many good qualities, but hey, she can really get on my nerves too, she is a teenager!!
For this card, I used two images, Magnolia's Tilda Ballerina and Mo Manning’s Odette. I choose them because dancing is one of her passions, she loves to dance, she transforms when she is dancing, she really loves it. I colored the images with Copics.  The design paper is from Magnolia, the flowers from Wild Orchids Crafts. The ribbon, charm and other embellishments are from my stash.  I am including a lot of pictures because the card has so many details.  And here it is, I hope you enjoy it.

Back to School...It's Time for Learning

Hello ladies! I hope you are all doing great.  Today I have a very special card.  About mid July, my daughter, challenged us to create a Back to School card.  She provided us the challenge rules, the sketch and MORE rules. She wanted us to make something special because she is a senior and this will be her last year at school, next year she'll be going to college...OMG!!And because life can sometimes get so complicated, she has had to change the challenge due date a few times.  I was finally able to finish my card this past weekend, so here it is.  I hope you enjoy it!
