A Very Special Card

Today I am helping to set up and then later attending the Red Door Early Learning Center's 50th Birthday Party.  My daughter attended Red Door preschool for two years.  To say that she was prepared for kindergarten would be an understatement.  At Red Door she not only mastered the fundamental preschool skills but she developed a love of learning.  The teachers are so caring and helpful and quickly became role models to my daugher.  I had lots of opportunities to volunteer and eventually became a substitute teacher where I was welcomed into the Red Door Family with open arms.  I truly miss going there now but am looking forward to sending my son there.  

A birthday party is a great opportunity to make a card and this one is more of a "thanks for all you do!"  As a gift I am giving the school copies of these fantastic books that my cousin wrote and illustrated.  Here is the special card I made:

I am addicted to the bokeh attempt.  It is so easy.  I chose a fun bright color palette; Pacific Point, Red Red and Pumpkin Pie.  Here is a close up of the sentiment.  I stamped in once with Pacific Point on Whisper White and the stamped it with versamark on Real Red and embossed with white on the "world" banner and cut it out to add some extra color.  

The card is actually and easel card...I do love those fancy folds, and these are so easy to make!  

Here is a close up of the inside quote from a retired stamp set...I thought it was perfect for those great preschool teachers!  

I added a personal message inside that is a little bit hidden, mostly because I have awful handwriting!   

Thanks for looking!
