Digital Tuesday challenge 5

Good morning everyone, hope you are all having a great start to your day :)
It's time for this weeks Digit
al Tuesday Challenege and todays challenge is Teacher Appreciation.
You can make a card or whatever else you fancy as long as it's has a digital image on it. Doesn't have to be a Digital Stamp Oasis image, it can be whatever you like but DSO have just released new images and 2 of them are perfect for this challenge. I had a hard time choosing which one to use!
Here's my card which I have used one of the new images on.


Don't ask what is going on here, I have no idea where this came from lol.
I had an idea in my head that I would use some school themed papers but of course my Darling Daughter just had to make her own card with them for her teacher, so back to the drawing board! I then thought I would use a page out of a dictionary with the meaning of the word school or teacher showing but of course I couldn't find a dictionary because we had packed all the books away for decorating and haven't bothered to take them back out of storage, Typical !! But then I remembered about some lovely journaling papers I got in the candy I won on Tindaloos blog last month. Thought it might look like a page from a school book? they are very small so had to go looking for something else to use with it so had another look and this is what I came up with. I did use all the Prima flowers I have used on the top flower (the one that looks vintage and has printing on, don't know their real name), but thought it looked a bit dull, so just kept one and swapped the rest for some green ones to tie in with the image.
Wow what a lot of dribble just to tell you how I came up with this card. I bet none of you even care anyway lol.
Anyway not my usual style but I do like vintage kind of stuff, just don't do it very well. I think next week is back to my normal cute (well I know it is because I have already done my card lol)
Hope you can join us this week, and be sure to check out the other girls cards on the challenge blog. They have all done a fab job again. There is 12 of us on the DT so loads of inspiration for you :)

I will be back with another card later but untill then see ya

It's nice to read dribble every now and then and especially since you don't do it enough. It sure made me smile. Keep it up.

And the card is lovely despite "all that". I also like your new page. Much easier to read!

Blimey Lora you were quick of the mark on this one lol. I love it your colours the flowers and that image they all make the recipe of a top of the class card.
