Non-traditional Graduation

 A very special friend just graduated from college.  She got a BS in .... something pastry ... something business ... something.  I think she had to be able to say it to graduate!  Anyway, I'm very proud of her, and made a card for her.  I really liked how this one turned out.  




I used the adorable bike die from Your Next Stamp to symbolize the journey.  This piece was cut from vellum.  





Your Next Stamp also has a set of pinwheel dies ... goodness, how cute!!!  This is the larger sized one, and it has a small, yellow brad in the center.  The die even cuts the holes at the ends of each pinwheel piece to add the brad in the center..





The main colors for the card are lime green and blue/turquoise.  The girl image is also from Your Next Stamp - as is the cute die cut flowers at the top of the image.  A ribbon of blue and white with a strand of lime baker's twine finishes the card off.


I'm not sure why this card draws me so much, but I really do like it a lot.  I sure hope Victoria does, as well. :) 


Hope you have a happy, blessed Sunday, and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow.  Please take the time to remember those who have given their lives so that we are free to go to church, speak our minds, bear arms, live our lives, and pursue happiness.  If you see a service member or veteran, thank them.
