Securing a B.S. Degree!


  AND
are the two challenges I am entering tonight. Please notice that Joy of Sets Challenge #JOS002 - The Letter S is only their second challenge. I wish them much success in their new venture and hope you will check them out.

Stamp Ink Paper #109 Sketch Challenge from Lisa is one of my favorite challenges...so here goes...



I created this for our friend who decided to attend college online to get her B.S. She has been in the work force for many years and was nervous about doing this. I believe she is graduating with honors this Friday! The colors are not my favorite, but Mossy Meadow and Hello Honey were her college colors!

I used Sunshine Sayings for my sentiment on the front; Swirly Bird for my envelope front; Beautiful You for my dancing woman who is tossing her graduation hat (from the March 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit); and sentiments from Beautiful You on the inside, as well as sentiments from This Little Piggy. I used the paper piecing technique for her dress using a piece from Delightful Daisy DSP. I also used that DSP on the outside flap of the envelope.

Our friend wasn't going to attend the graduation ceremonies, but I'm so glad she changed her mind and, hopefully, she'll receive her card in time to affirm her decision!

Thanks for looking!
