My project today was inspired by a wonderful local business called Noodles and Company. Our local facility generously donated a mac and cheese lunch to the classroom at our elementary school that collected the most Box Tops for Education this year! I am the head of that fund raising committee and I counted, cut and submitted every last box top that was turned in. Fancy enough, my kindergartner's class collected the most! So last week my co chair and I brought in mac and cheese for 24 kindergartners! They LOVED it! Most of them had 2nd and 3rd helpings! The woman at Noodles and Company is such a fantastic lady. She was willing to do basically anything to support the school. What a neat experience for everyone! SOOO I wanted to send her something to thank her for her generosity. I decided to make a card for the Peachy Keen Sketch Challenge #53 with a twist, where the twist was to use a sponging technique. I've been learning how to ink the edges of my papers but I wanted to try something a little different. Here is the Peachy Keen Sketch:
and here is the card I created:
I immediately thought of the bowl and noodles image from Create a Critter when I decided to make this card! I mean how perfect! I sponged the edges of all of the papers but I also cut out the sentiment Thank You and sponged through the shadow onto my background sheet. I think it turned out pretty neat! I finished the sketch by using Glossy Accents and some Martha Stewart glitter! I really like the look of this card! I cannot wait to bring it into Noodles and Company!
