Grad 2015

A friend of mine asked me to make up a grad card for her daughter but at first when she said the colors were GOLD and BLACK I thought UGH!!  Then to top it off with blonde hair?!!  DOUBLE UGGGGGGH!!  Not my strong suit!!  HOWEVER!!  I met this challenge with a vengeance!!  I had a whole lot of fun making this card and it came together incredibly fast.  I was surprised.  So ya, instead of taking a whole day it only took half.  LOL!!  

I fretted about what image I was going to use until Krista from Saturated Canary put this cutie out this year.  Ahhhhh excellent timing!!  (Copic colors listed below)  Name of image "Grad Girl 2015".  The grad cap is a chipboard piece from Southern Ridge Trading Company and I painted it with Mod Podge then covered it with Tim Holtz distress glitter.  Looks sooooo cool IRL!!  

I used this gorgeous chipboard clock from SRTC as well.  (LOVE THESE THINGS!)  VIN-547  Added my usual big bouquet to top off the card!  LOL!

And I just love this book charm I found in my stash from Live and Love Crafts!!  PERFECT!!  

The blackberries and that gorgeous piece of white lace is also from LLC.  The little butterfly die and the star border are from Noor! Design.  

Ok so 1 more grad card to go for my stepson.  STEPSON FOLKS!  A GUY GRAD CARD!  OMG!  Sigh...I have to make it this weekend so we'll see how I make out with that.  Yikes!  I am clueless on this one.  

Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate the comments!  XO

I never would have guessed you were dreading making this card - it certainly has the wow factor. Love the image and the colour scheme is so striking. Fabulous embellishments also.
I have just had a browse around your blog and your projects are all stunning - love all the mixed media.
I am following your blog now SO I don't miss your posts.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Hugs Sharon. x
