C4C148 - Teacher,Inspired by #35 and The Paper Players #107

Hello friends and Happy Wednesday!  Today I have created a card to celebrate one of the heros in our lives - a teacher.  Many kids across the country are going back to school soon (mine does start til the end of the month) and what a perfect time to thank someone who has so much influence on our children's lives.  I used the following challenges to create my card:
Crazy 4 Challenges #148 - Teacher (C4C148)
Inspired by #35 - (see photo inspiration below)

The Paper Players Challenge #107 - Back to School Rules

I picked up on the superhero theme from the Inspired by photo and the colors.  We have been really fortunate in that our kids have had some really wonderful teachers.  Our son had a teacher named Mr. Lehman in kindergarden and again in fourth grade. Mr. Lehman was just a fabulous and positive influence - he recognized that our son was quite smart and keep him challenged in a fun way.  They still have a good relationship today many years later.   I'm sure many of you know teachers like this.  How lucky we are to have people like this in our lives.  And God love 'em for taking on that challenge!
Here's the inside:
I cute the words from a strip at the top of a piece of DSP from Close to My Heart (superhero) and added some more of the corner rub-ons to the top and bottom to coordinate with those on the front of the card. 
Thanks so much for popping in to visit today - I'm sure glad that  you did.  Have a most wonderful day - Hugs!

Supplies (from Stampin Up! unless noted otherwise): Cardstock - Summer Starfruit, Real Red and Marina Mist.  Textured embossing folder Chevron.  Digital image from Mo Manning called Superduper boy.  Image colored with a combo of copic markers and SU markers and a blender pen (Summer Starfruit and Marina Mist).  Sentiment and corner accents (as well as words from inside) are from Close to My Heart - Superhero accents.  Button is from my stash.
