This challenge was good for me because I needed to make my son a card! He's working hard to be on the honor roll this first 9 weeks in school and so far he's carrying mostly A's, and he's a freshman in high school! I'm so proud of him! I know he's going to make it and so I made this card to give to him along with the "reward" he will be getting...his dad finally decided to get him a cell phone. He's super excited about it! Well, I chose to use purple paper because his school colors are purple & black. He saw the folded card that I received from last months Magnolia-licious mingle and thought it was cool, so I decided to make that style of a card for him. I just happened to have some wood looking wall cover samples from the girls at work and that was perfect for the border of the blackboard. I used glossy accents on the 2 full pencils on the front panel. I thought it turned out rather cool. I hope he likes it!
