Today is Your Day!!

I have a wonderful group of ladies that love to color cards using the painting with Distress Inks technique, and at a recent class they were all talking about the fact that each and every one of them has a child graduating from high school this year.  After they had left for the evening I thought that I should just maybe get busy designing a card for either a girl or boy graduate, and within a few days the group leader called to request a class with grad cards!!!  So here's one of the cards that I designed using the Grad Girl 2012 image from Saturated Canary.

After painting the image I fussy cut her out, which meant that the tassel had to go, so what better way to replace it, then to make an actual tassel.  She is popped up on the card front in front of a Cheery Lynn die, and designer paper from Moxie, and Karen Foster Designs.  The pearls were made with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen, and the sentiment is from The Places You'll Go set from Taylored Expressions.
I'll show you the grad boy card in a few days!!
