Graduation and an Award!

One of the teachers that I work with asked if I could make a card for her daughter that would be graduating from one of the area universities over the weekend. Of course, I said yes! This is what I came up with. She wanted an image that reminded her of her daughter so I used Heather Ellis' Graduation Girl. You can find Heather's images here. I colored her with my Copic Markers (B21, B23, B26, E000, E01, E55, R20, Y21, and Y32) to go with the school's colors. The sentiment was made on the computer so that I could personalize it and then I used my Nesties to cut out the ovals. The card base is Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select Card Stock in white. I then added a layer of Stampin' Up's Brilliant Blue and an embossed layer of white. A few pearls in the corners and some sheer ribbon from Michaels complete this creation.

The other thing that I would like to share with you today is a "Sunshine Award" that my friend LeAnne Pugliese passed along to me. Thank you again LeAnne! My job is to now share it with ten blogging friends and they can then pass it along to ten others.
