Graduation Card

I am so bad about updating but since I work nights I only get a chance to go in my scraproom on Wed - Friday normally. I like working midnights but sometime they really get to me. I bought this stamp at my lss so not sure who makes it but it's gorgeous. I had my daughter in mind when I bought it because she graduates this June. It's been a long 12 years.

This card is stamped with versamark on Fabriano watercolor paper. For this one I used Hot Press which means its not as lumpy. I then used just regular Gold Detail embossing powder which i buy in bulk instead of the itty bitty container's it sells in. I also store all my embossing powders or glitter in sandwhich containers or some type of small container with a spoon in it. It

makes it so much easier to use. I don't know how people use it in those baby jars.

I then pulled out all my Twinkling H2O's which I love but always forget I have them. It's hard to see in the picture but they are shimmery in person. I did the 2 largest roses and ribbon and cut them out with scissors. and then i colored the bottom. I used stardream gold cardstock for the backing and embossed it with one of my cuttlebugs. I just love this card its sooo pretty in person.
