A colleague of mine is receiving a big award from our school district. I can't be there for the awards reception, but I was able to make her this card, using the fun stamps and dies from Papertrey Ink's Lighten Up collection.
I used the Cuttlebug Polka-Dots embossing folder to get some texture on my background and added a strip of My Mind's Eye Charm Decorative Tape. To get just a subtle pattern on my lamp shades, I used Versamark ink with the coordinating stamps from Lighten Up.
