Getting Organised!

This is a new Sketch Challenge blog for me - Inspirational Card Sketches, and the sketch is:
As soon as I saw it, I knew what I wanted to do! I always try my best to be as organised as possible because if I'm not, something always happens that takes that precious allocated time away and I either end up on the very last minute or late. And I don't like that. Anyway. Planning ahead. Samuel will complete his first year at school in the Reception class at the end of July and I want to make his 4 teachers a thank you card. And this is what I came up with:

The spotty backing paper is from Funky Daze, the pearlescent deep blue card (can't really tell its pearlescent on this photo) is from SAMS Scrap Store in Blackburn, the sentiment is a Cuttlebug Baby Face alphabet set, the apple is my own template and I've chalked it for effect, and the 'mini Samuel' is all Sizzix.
Edges have been inked and either dotted or doodled. One down, 3 to go!
  • Printed backing paper: Funky Daze
  • Dark blue backing: From SAMS Scrap Store
  • Dies: Sizzix for 'mini me' and Cuttlebug Baby Face alphabet
  • Apple: My own template
