Spelling Bee Card

Happy Saturday!  During Catholic Schools Week, the school that my boys go to holds a spelling bee each year.  The top speller from each grade gets to spell on stage in front of the whole school.  My oldest son is in 4th grade and went to the spelling bee again this year.  (He also went the last 2 years.  You can see the cards that I previously made him HERE and HERE)  Since he was in an older grade, he was competing against 5-8 graders!  I figured he needed all the luck he could get, so I made this card for him :)
I used a SVG file from Too Cute By Jessica for the card.  Papers are from Authentique's 6x6 Be(you)tiful stack.  The SPELL stamps are from Latina Crafter.  For embellishments, I added Bumblebee Trendy Twine and adhesive pearls.
Much to my surprise, he won first place!  His winning word was "sentries".  Here he is getting his medal :)  Now we will be headed to the Midwest spelling bee where he will compete against kids throughout NE and western IA.  Nervous mama here!  That is exactly a month away yet, though so I will have time to get used to the idea.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
