New Job

A friend of mine is responsible for organising greetings cards for members of staff at her school and for some time has been asking me to make them. She ordered 15 cards the other day and this is one of them.
I took my inspiration from last week's 3 Squares challenge at "Less is More" and used my Baroque Border SU Stampin wheel, which I stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in gold. I then cut out three squares from the strip with square Nesties.
Mounted on white then black, the edges being punched with my Fiskars Upper Crest border punch... I love this punch!
The sentiment was made on the computer.
We've been away since Friday, so I've been blogging on the hoof as it were, but we'll soon be home again so I can get back to my desk!
One Stop Crafts - Black, White  plus one other colour (Gold)
CES Challenges - Good Luck/St Patrick's Day (Obviously this is the Good Luck version)
