Congratulations, Graduate!

Hi, guys! Graduation season is upon us!  I was asked by a fellow blogger to make a personalized card for her sister's MBA graduation.  I wanted to tie the business aspect with the graduation theme, so I decided to use my Tim Holtz Alterations ledger embossing folder for the background.  It is aged with Vintage Photo & Black Soot Distress Ink.

Supplies:
Stamps: Ditto G, Hero Arts
Paper: Gina K
Ink: Black Archival, Distress Inks
Misc.: Tim Holtz Alterations Embossing Folder, Alpha Parts-Ideology 

I thought it would be fun to make my own flags to personalize the card.

I was very happy to hear that the graduate is an accountant, and so the ledger background was a great idea!

Congratulations to Lesley on such a wonderful accomplishment!  Keep reaching for your dreams!

Until next time!

Fantastic graduate card! Love the embossed background and your inking really makes it POP. Love the little pennant flags and how you personalized them. This graduate will be so pleased to receive this.
