I need to make some graduation cards, some for boys and some for girls, and I want to make them more special and personalized than those off from the shelf.  I've certainly started off with the girly ones first.

I have made this feminine one:

It says "Believe until your dreams come true" inside.  Too bad I won't be send her a bouquet of flowers on her graduation day, so I'll send her flowers in this card. To make the flowers pop more, I've actually inked them in Buttercup then rocked and rolled them in Creme Brulee, so their outlines are more defined. 

It is based on a sketch from Try Stampin' On Tuesday:

and the color combo from Color My Heart Color Dare - Pear, Twilight and Buttercup, the subtle colors from my favorite paper pack, Chantilly!

Now I'm off to making the masculine graduation cards.  Wish me luck!
