Wise Owl Teacher Thanks

Happy Friday! 
I hope your week has gone well! I'm feeling kind of tired this week & I'm pretty sure it's because of my new FitBit. According to it, I log almost a quarter mile every night when I thought I was sleeping. I used to sleep walk when I was a kid, but I'm pretty sure I don't anymore. I wasn't so tired until it told me about all the supposed mileage during the night. Wonder what's up with that??

Anyway, I have a Teacher Thank You card to share today. It's getting close to the end of the school year & a lot of people like to make cards for those special teachers. This also continues the DRS Challenge from yesterday to use a die cut. My original intent was to use the Owl & the Open Bible & then I thought, what goes w/ books? Reading glasses! Around here, anyway, because I have terrible eyesight. Then I pulled out the Teacher Tools & saw that the stump the owl was sitting on, matched up just about perfectly w/ the pencil cup in other image. If I had done it before hand, I would have masked the apple, but since the owl was already done, I just masked him & did an extra apple to add on top. The book was stamped twice & I used a Micron pen to scribble the "writing" & popped up the extra image to give it some dimension.
The blue bg was embossed w/ an apple folder & the Thanks word was die cut once out of the vermillion & once out of white & double stacked a little offset. The glasses were die cut & I put some thin plastic behind them to simulate the lenses.

Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copic colors I used.
Thank so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend & don't sleep walk too much!
