Good Afternoon All,
Before I begin, I would like to thank all my faithful followers for their lovely comments. Always a nice feeling when someone lets you know they appreciate your work.

So today's card I made out of necessity. I have 2 nieces and one nephew graduating this year. Two from high school and one from college, not to mention my own daughter is graduating with her Master's Degree this year. So this is just one of many cards I will be making. This one is going to be for my youngest niece who is graduating high school, the older niece is her sister and she graduating college, my poor sister whew!

I used this adorable image from Sassy Studio, very stylish like my niece Amanda. I colored her with copics. The sentiment is acutally rub on letters from Making Memories. The paper is from  Authentique a 6 x 6 pad called Celebrate (appropriate I know!). The flowers I made with a brand new die I just bought yesterday (with the gift card I got for Mother's Day) from Memory Box. I have been dying to try these rolled flowers, so fun. I stuck a little pearl inside each one. The ribbon and rhinestones are from my stash.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Paper Pretties: Graduation
Crafty Sentiments: Bingo (Pattern Paper/Colored Image/Die Cut)
Designed to Color: Handmade flowers

Thanks for stopping by! I am off to make more hehe!

Hi Kim, just catching up with your fab cards. Love your colouring and your images are just lovely.

Great colour on this one - wonderful papers as well.

Your flowers are gorgeous - I've got a rolled flower die, but they just look like bits of rolled up paper, not flowers!!!
