Graduation Card

Hello from Rhineland, Germany!  I am so delighted that it's my day to share a project at My Craft Spot today!  This is the project that I am sharing there: 

My daughter recently graduated from high school and I made this card for my husband and I to give her to let her know how very proud we are of her.  Although Erin's school colours are green and gold, Erin wore hot pink to prom and so I decided to go with that colour instead.  It's more bright and celebratory!  

Way to go Graduate! ~ Congrats ~ UR Fabulous

The graduate was cut from Paper Dolls Teen Scene at 6 inches.  I then used a Stampin' Up punch for the borders at the top and bottom of the card.  I cut the little tags and shadows for my banner using the new Tiny Tags dies and stamped them using sentiments from both Tiny Tags and Tiny Tags 2.  I just LOVE these little stamps and dies!!  I used some fun Pink Sorbet baker's twine to string my banner - and tied some little bows for each tag too.  I finished things off with some bling, using some large gems to create some sparkle on my card.

And here's a photo of Erin and Kyle just before heading off to prom:
