TUESDAY May 10, 2011- Here Comes the Grad:

Neva <= you are here
Karen K.< go here next


This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 322 - Blushing Celery Saffrons.
My layout is from Monday's MOJO MONDAY CHALLENGE # 190.
The blushing bride panel was embossed with Script EF in the cuttlebug after inking the positive side with blushing bride marker for Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 324 - Colored Embossing.
My image and sentiment are from MARKS FINEST PAPERS brand new acrylic set called "HERE COMES THE GRAD". I stamped the sentiment in certainly celery and the cap image in so saffron over the sentiment.
I stamped the tassel in so saffron, cut it out and popped it up attaching it to the focal panel with a large pink brad.
I love how this turned out and will be giving it to a co-worker who just finished her BSN program. She will love it
RECIPE:
Stamps: Here Comes The Grad - MFP
Paper: white, blushing bride, certainly celery, so saffron
Ink: blushing bride, certainly celery, so saffron
Accessories: brad, cuttlebug, Script Embossing folder, Fiskars border punch, ribbon, dimensionals
