College Graduation Card

A co-worker of mind just graduated from college in December 2014. We had a little get together for her. This is the card I made.  She told me that she was going to frame it.  I take it she was pleased.

 I stenciled  on a piece of ivory cardstock a little smaller then 5 x 7. When the paste was dry I sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang  sprays from the November 2014 Color Challenge, Tainted Love Teal, Red Hot Poker Orange and Sweet Violet Purple Teal.  To make the flowers  and leaves I used water color paper. I stamped Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink  and cut with coordinating die, then  sprayed the petals with Sweet Violet Purple Teal spray. The little Roses were cut from Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms and sprayed with LSG A Bit o' Bubbly.  The leaves were cut from HFC Bella Rose die and colored with LSG Maidenhair Fern Green.  For the sentiment I used a  stamp from JustRite Papercraft named  Large Fancy Sentiments and embossed with LSG Cleopatra's Copper. The sentiment was cut with a Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags Two die.  I made a stick pin and dyed ribbon with LSG  A Bit o'Bubbly.

I added seed beads to the flower centers.
