Sarah's Graduation Card

Last week was such a stressful week at work. I put in a lot of hours which can only mean one thing -- time to buy some stamps!!!!!!!! And that's exactly what I did. I placed several orders and now have the hard part of waiting for them all to arrive!!

I cased this card by Toy because I loved the layout: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/939151?cat=500&ppuser=11437 Our niece graduated from high school and we drove up to be at her party. As you figured out, her high school colors are black and gold --- figured I'd better explain that since they also happen to be Steeler colors!!!!! I stamped the grad hat from the set Sketch an Event then watercolored it with basic grey, cut it out, put in a vintage brad, then popped it up. I liked Summer sun the best of all the yellows I had and mixed it with So saffron. The words are from Papertrey Ink -- I need a new one inch circle punch, don't like the way mine cuts a little piece out of the circle. Darn, that means a trip to the stamp store, how awful!!!!!!!!

Great grad card! I will be casing this one! Things have been so hectic with us I haven't been keeping up with my favorite blogs. Glad I finally got a chance to stop by. I missed some great cards the past couple weeks! Have a great weekend!
