A supply teacher at our school was taken on permanently last week,. and she's thrilled.
So, I made her this card... and she loved it!
She said..."It's just my style!"

The image is one I won, a while back, over at Beansie doodles...
she is called "Zilpha" and I thought this would be just perfect for the card.
I coloured her first, then picked a backing paper to go with her. 
This is actually a scrap - a piece I had saved, as it was a nice size and super, spring colours!
Its a lovely quality backing paper, I just found in my stash...
with glitter lines inbetween each stripe of colour.
A simple sentiment and a few punched butterflies, with an embossed edge
finished this card.
