Success & Dreams

"Tis the season for all kinds of celebrations, and I am trying to be ahead of the game. This is a graduation card for a friend's daughter.. her school colors are green & white. I love this new set from Papertrey Ink called "For the Graduate", and when I saw Jen del Muro's Skipping Stones Designs guest designer sketch for this week, I knew they would go together nicely. I really love this sketch.

There is some detail that you can't really see in the photo, but they really enhanced this card. The cap & tassel are stamped twice in black and cut out. I colored the cut out with a black gel glaze pen to give it some shine & texture. Also, the black circle in the middle of the focal point is cut from black glitter paper that I got at Target a while ago. I also used that paper for the star that is popped up on the greeting band. I am happy with the way it all came together.
