Unconventional Graduation Card-for my Goddaughter

Hello, everyone! I think it's been 7 months since my last blog post. Shame on me!

I wanted to share a Graduation card I made for my niece Danielle. She graduated from University of Hawaii in May and I'm so proud of her! A week or so after graduation she left for Australia to see what life is like down under. She hopes to find work there and stay a while.

I always think of my niece as a free spirit and as such wanted to make her something that symbolized her spirit. Here is what I came up with:



I like the simplicity of the card and that it fit my niece's circumstance and personality.  Danielle likes it, so I consider it a success!

Materials used: Embossing folders from Stampin Up and Provocraft, black and white cardstock,  layered bird image was cut on my Cameo from a Silhouette file, "congratulations little bird", "It's time to fly...." and sketched bird image done with my Chomas pen holder and gel pens. I colored in the sketched bird with the gel pen once it was drawn onto the circle to create a silhouette image.

Thanks for looking,
