Congrats to the Grad!

My niece, Maggie, graduated from college last weekend, so I made this congrats card for her. Her school colors are purple and gold, but I just went with purple. I don't like gold much, and when I sat down to create, I realized I don't even own any gold supplies. Hope she likes it.

Maggie's sister graduated from high school last night, so I'll be posting another congrats card for her in a day or two.


Stamps: Mega Mixed Messages (PTI)
Paper: Kraft, Orchid Opulence textured, PTI white
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, flowers (Prima), Nestabilities Labels 1, pearl (Kaisercraft), dimensionals

So pretty Ann! The little bit of yellow in the prima center almost looks gold, so I think you got a little in there;)

Just bought a couple more Nestabilities labels... I do love them. I really like how you didn't use "just" the next in line for your layer. Very cool card. I am so behind on graduation/retirement cards!!
