So proud

This week, Austin was in five skits in his high school drama group's
performance of "A Completely Incomplete History of Comedy."
He was wonderful!
I was so happy to see him put effort into this and
do such a great job!


I wanted to let him know how proud I am of him,
so I made him a card.


I started with a base of Basic Grey Carte Postale patterned paper.
Then, using my new A Few Pointers dies, I die cut my vintage cream card stock for
this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: DYI Cover Plates.
I die cut some more Basic Grey patterned paper with the same dies
and stamped them with the A Few Pointers stamps.
I stamped the "so proud of" from Wonderful Words: Additions &
die cut the "you" from true black card stock.

Thanks for looking!
