Hi Everyone, my DT card today is for -

I have a few favourite artists and tried to put together (very quickly because of our circumstances at the moment) something from them, then I came across "Banksy"  a highly controversial artist, but as things are, at the moment, with us, this quote rung true, so I thought it would be perfect. If you think you don't know him, maybe you saw him on the news or an article about one of his paintings that someone bought for a £1 million and it Shredded in the sale room.

Banksy – I'll never quit on this love for Amber. It has destroyed me but I'm still here. My dreams!! 

I believe he was either speaking about the painting below or the painting became out of the quote? I'm not sure, and, as he is anonymous? I'm not sure anyone is.

This is my version of
I thought the card would be good for a Congratulations/Exams card, 
what do you think?

I love Banksy - he is just so on the point and I love that his work often highlights social injustice. He really gets it. Wonderful take on this fabulous artist!
