Some cards to share...

WARNING...It's a long post!!

I am sharing a couple of cards that I have made recently. The Graduation card I made tonight for my niece who finishes Primary School this week to move onto Secondary College next year. Wow! I remember when she was a toddler playing on my kitchen floor with assorted plastic lids (yes I went all out with the toys!).

I used the Club Anya and Friends Saturday Sketch # 47. I paper pieced the robes and hat. The patterned paper I used is printed from a photo I took of a school dress from my niece's school.
Card Recipe:
Cardstock: Bazzill, Plain white cardstock
Paper: Bella School Days 
Stamps: TGF Grad Anya digital image, Computer generated sentiment
Inks: none
Embellishments/Other: Copics, blue satin ribbon, Stampin' Up punch, Kindyglitz crystalina, Kaisercraft rhinestones, nestabilities

This is a Christmas Card I made using the CC Designs Santa Emma stamp.
