A Song For A Student

I'm in a weather man mood, so here's todays weather in Stockholm....it's soooo coooold! I'll probably thaw at Midsummer Eve. Ok, now I got it out of me, so lets check the card. A lot of Students got their hats yesterday and they'll have their examination day in a month, so why not a card for a student?! The sentiment says "Sing of happy days Student" in Swedish. 

Challenges:
Simply Create Too: Stack Em' Up
Dream Valley Challenges: Say It With Words
Simon Says Stamps: Anything Goes
As You Like It: Recycling, I love to recycle boxes and backings from note books, they're sturdy enough to go wild with colours

I used:
A backing from a notebook for the background. It was stippled, sponged and splashed with Distress inks, some Perfect Pearls added for metallic shine, stamped with Penny Black notes.
The flowers were made with Cuttlebug dies, the leaves are Quickutz, the car is Marianne design cut out several times and layered.
Itsy Bitsy chipboard letter sprayed with Perfect Pearl mist.
Kaiser half pearls
Inkido sentiment
Warming hugs for everyone who needs.
