Alternative Graduation Card

I've made this card for my Mum to send to a friend of hers who is about to graduate.  As she is in her 50's mum thought that flowers would be more appropriate for an image, so I've used this flower boquet stamp by Magenta - I bought it ages ago and struggle to use it cos it's not really my taste if I'm honest.  It tends to see the light of day for with sympathy cards as it looks beautiful with the roses left white, and maybe I stuggled to use it for something that is a celebration as opposed to a sad time...

Personally I thought she'd have prefered something less formal, but I did what I was told!

I've used the new flowers that I got from Wild Orchid Crafts and I'm pretty pleased with them as they are good quality, a great selection of colours and at a reasonable price too, can't be bad!  I've accented the petals with some Stickles.  The papers are all by Bo Bunny

Anyway, got to go - first night of a busy weekend - hope you have a great one

Thanks for stopping by
