Make, take and donate card class coming soon!

Here is a graduation card I made for the upcoming Make, Take, and Donate card class at our church's Oasis recovery program.  The class is simply a $5 donation to Oasis and we will make this card as well as 2 other cards in the class.  You make all three and then at the end you have the option to donate one to the thrift store to be sold on behalf of Oasis.
To make this card, I used Basic Black, Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant and a touch of Summer Sun ink. 
I stamped the owl from the Go, Graduate set in the summer mini.  I stamped it in Black StazOn ink on watercolor paper.  Then I colored it using watercolor pencils and a blender pen.  I added a bit of detail with my Signo Uni-Ball white gel pen.  Finally, I cut out a Congratulations "C" in Summer Sun from the 8 Great Greetings stamp set. 
Punches used:  Eyelet border, scallop circle, 1 1/4" circle, 1" circle
Well, I gave a kids scrapbook challenge, so I thought I would show you my little 3-year old's masterpieces!  She wanted to make a card for her daddy and a cow puppet to play with.  She did most everything by herself with only a little bit of help from me!  No matter what, she had a blast using mommy's stamps and making special projects with mommy.  They were good rainy day activities!

hmmm... not sure what my problem is... sorry about the deleted comments! I double posted somehow, and then when I tried to take one away they were both deleted. Anyway, I love the card! Good luck with your Make, Take & Donate class. I love the fun projects your daughter made! Thanks for sharing!
