A card for Teacher

Hello, haven't had much chance to craft the last couple of days as
I'm in the middle of re-organising my craft room,
got a few bits from Ikea & once it's done will upload some pics.
Did have a bit of an accident ~ I have a great tabletop storage unit which has about 30 drawers, most of these drawers are divided into 3 compartments and all my brads, eyelets,  embellies etc. were all sorted into colour & size! and I knocked it over spilling the majority into a very mixed up pile.... thank god Mackenzie came to the rescue and helped sort it. She did quite well out of though as most of my older stuff ended up in her craft drawer - giving me much more space, and the bonus of knowing I can still get my hands on it hehe!
Anyway the only card I've managed to work on is for ALLSORTS on Saturday, so can't show that one.
I did have this one done, but hadn't got round to posting it!
I have used:
Stamping Bella ~ Gracie Lollipop
SU ~ Punches
Retro flower punches
Kelly Panici ~ Border
Water-coloured ~ Distress inks
Staples & Paperclips from Stash
Mackenzie wrote on the large scallop circle
I would like to enter the following challenge:

Paper Sundaes ~ Back to school
Thanks for looking

Hi Fleur, I love the way you've added quite a few school themed elements, it draws it all together to make another wonderful design. My creations are no way as good as this, it will always say on my report 'must try harder'!
See you soon
Love Nicola xxx

Love your card! I have at least eight teachers to prepare the cards for. Four teachers, plus teacher assistants for all of my kids. Hope you don't mind if I steal some ideas :)

If I were a teacher here is the grade you'll get from me - A++
