It's Time for Tableau Tuesdays!!!

Okay, so I know it is actually Thursday, but, there have been some CRAZY things going on in my life right now, a little slow, but I got there!!
For this creation, I used  
He comes with
  "4 stamps featuring Aristotowl.
 ideal for exam results, graduation, car test passes etc.
She even left one board area blank for you to add a different sentiment of choice."
isn't he SWEET!! 
I love this, especially with the end of the year upon us, even though I only have one left in Elementary School ( I stop giving teachers gifts in middle school)......I still could find MANY uses for this guy!! 
He is very wise!!
Papers are from Close To My Heart
Colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol
Misc. flower and button
I dry embossed the Outdoor Denim Blue cardstock
and then distressed it. CTMH cardstock is great for 
distressing, as it has a white core. Great look for dry embossing.
Check out the other creations at the Challenge Blog for Tableau Tuesdays!!!

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
