Make It Monday #66 {Rolled Flowers}

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

I assumed that most of you knew I was a sign language interpreter.  I guess I was wrong:)  I have been an interpreter in the school system for about 15 years.  The last 3 years I have been interpreting for a girl who is now in 6th grade.  She is a great kid and endless inspiration, from the patterns on her clothes to the color combinations she puts together.  This card is inspired by the pattern on her backpack.  I loved the colors on her bag too and have used the same ones on my card! 

Since she inspired the design I decided to use a sentiment to inspire her.

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Great color combination. Love how you created the background. The rolled flower is so cute.

  3. What a gorgeous background! I haven't seen Garden of Life used for..... well I don't know how long! But you've totally brought it back into the limelight now! Love it!

  4. What a stunning background!!
    The colors are gorgeous...
    and the card is too...
    as always! :)
    You have no idea how much I admire you for what you do every day.
    Having a special needs child myself...
    I don't know what we would do without her incredible teachers and aides...
    but I do know that the rewards are not measured in dollars...
    but in steps.
    Steps taken and achieved...
    obstacles overcome...
    and the smile that lights up their face when they reach a goal!
