Graduation Card

Good evening! I made this card for my niece, Zoie, for her elementary school graduation. The graduation was actually last week but I since I will see her this weekend, she will get her card then. I started with the Sketch challenge from SCS today but I think I modified it a little bit, my panels aren't quite the right size. I was going to stick with her school colors which are a light blue, royal blue and white but it was looking to much like a boy card. I replaced one of the earlier panels with this floral print. This Graduation Riley was one of the stamps that my friend Angela gave me for my birthday. She is one of the few people that will buy stamps for me without a specific list because she knows what I buy and I generally know what she buys too.  Riley is colored with Copic markers. The sentiment is from Papertrey's Everyday Classics. What you can't really see is that I traced over the tassel and the word Congratulations with a blue Spica pen. All the paper is from DCWV and the eyelets are Making Memories.

We will be out of town this coming weekend too. I don't normally do that to myself, but it does happen on occasion. My brother's son's birthday is Friday and my sister's little boy will be two on Saturday so we will be heading to Chattanooga to celebrate both boy's birthdays. Thanks for visiting!
