A is for Awesome

Right before Christmas, my son came home with a gift bag that we decided to wait to open until Christmas.  Inside were all sorts of handmade goodies he had done at school, and I will treasure them always (even though I don't think he inherited mommy's crafty genes, lol.)  My son also has a very silly, quirky personality and at the beginning of the school year, his teacher asked him what he thought of her, and he told her he thought she was "just medium".  I don't know where he comes up with this stuff!  Lately though, we've noticed him drawing something on the backs of his school papers, and he told me that he is trying to make a heart for his teacher, because now he thinks she's AWESOME.  Still not sure what changed his mind, but she is a pretty awesome teacher, and I wanted to make her a card to let her know.  My son helped me pick out the image, and chose Super Betty, part of The Bettys 4 collection at Simply Betty Stamps (who just so happen to be our current sponsor at The Corrosive Challenge Blog!)

Betty is colored with Copics, all purples and pink per my son's guidance (purple is his teacher's favorite color).  She is fussy cut and popped up with foam squares.  I used a star embossing folder for the lavender paper behind her.

Sketch was #242 at Mojo Monday.  As usual too late to enter!  D'oh! 
Papers:  Stash and the striped one was from Recollections "Boo Who" paper pad.
Embellies:  W.O.C Cherry blossoms and roses, brads and adhesive gems and pearls from stash.  Stick pin handmade by me!  (I recently saw a tutorial how to make them, and they couldn't be easier, and I love the finishing touch they can add to a project).

Challenges entered:
