Late Note for the Teacher

 I made this Belated Birthday Card for my friend Michaela who just happens to be a teacher, so I thought I'd go with a notebook theme on this card.  I have also used DPs featuring travel paraphernalia as she loves to travel and a map of Italy as this is definitely one of her favourite destinations.

I put an order into Clearly Besotted on Tuesday afternoon and it arrived yesterday (Thursday) - that's what I call service.  Among the items I ordered was this lovely notebook edge die and this notebook page stamp.  I teamed it with this Just a Note sentiment from the WMS Funky Feathers set.

Inspiration for the layout came from Seize the Sketch #24.

I am also entering this in the current Make My Monday challenge to use Mail Art, as one of my DPs has a telegram on it !

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend,
