"Teacher's Rule" - 3 Girl JAM Challenge: Kraft + Ribbon

Hey there Crafty Blends and 3 Girl JAM-ers
Today is my day to post as a
DT Member with 3 Girl JAM

I created a fun Back to School Card for a Teacher!

The current challenge at the 3 Girl JAM Challenge Blog is:

Kraft w/Ribbon
That's right we want to see ALL those awesome projects using Kraft card stock and ribbon!!!!
(pssst....play along to win an awesome prize from 3 Girl JAM)

I used a Kraft Envelope and some Kraft Card Stock.
I recently grabbed up some fun bargains at  Unity Stamp Company (aka "My Favorite Stamp Company") and couldn't wait to get inky with these sweet set called Jen girl.
She is just one of the adorable angieGirl stamps available at Unity and created by artist 
Angie Blom.

I love using my 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon as a closure on my altered journals and this influenced my decision to use it here...

I am a huge fan of Paper Piecing and wanted to try some of my very neglected paper stacks.
I decided to use Greens and Golds/Yellows from my stash of 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon since those are our School Colors here in Amherst, OH.

I won't bore you with too many details, but if you have any questions, please feel free to leave me a comment here and I would love to stop by and visit your blog, too.

This took lots and lots of fussy cutting, a little bit of Zig Glue, and some TH Distress Inks to finish it.  

I am happy that it turned out as I envisioned it.
I just hope my sweet daughter's Kindergarten Teacher loves it on their First Day of School next week, too.

And, would it be a post from me if you didn't see Mini Bows and Pleating on my project, right???

I used the 3 Girl JAM Bow Maker 

to make the bow on the card and the fun bow in the Teacher's Hair
