Congrats Graduate!

I made this card for a cousin who will be graduating this weekend. And since the challenge at Sassy Studio Designs was graduation I just had to get my hands on this "Sandra's Graduation" stamp. Could it honestly be more perfect for this time of year? I'm sure we all know a sassy little graduate! I colored her with my copic markers. The flowers were made using spellbinders and glimmer mist, cut them out spray them, crumple them up and let them dry! Layer them on top of one another and add a button. So easy but adds great dimension! I used the sketch from Annabelle Stamps Blog for inspiration. I was so thrilled with how everything looked all put together and I didn't just want a regular old card so I also did a little work on the inside :
Inside I made two little pocket folders, you know in honor of the whole " done with school thing". Which are perfect to tuck the gift we painstakingly searched for. :: ok she's getting cash and maybe a gift card if I make it to a store in time:) :: Hope you like my graduation card! I have so much more to share shortly! AND 10 more days to enter my to win my blog candy!!!


All paper was from the boyfriend line by Cosmo Cricket, and craft cardstock

  7. Hi Calie,
    I've been going over the emails from the entries to the Kenny K DT call and I don't have an email from you. Could you please send one with a little bit about yourself. Thank you
