A fancy pink dress + a customized graduation card

Hello all!  I've got two cards to share today, both completely different.  The first is a card I delivered to the bridal shop, A Beautiful Touch.  It is intended as a bridal shower card, but certainly it could be given to a young lady for her birthday, as well.



I hope you're not tired of seeing the dress image from Stampin' Up!'s Blooming with Happiness.  It really lends itself well to the bridal cards, and is very sweet; fun to color, too.  :-)

Stamps: Blooming With Happiness - SU; sentiment - Fresh Cut Wreaths - Wplus9 Paper: gingham - digital paper - Inspired By Stamping; white - PTI; Sahara Sand, pink and brown patterns - SU Ink: Antique Linen - Ranger; Memento Tuxedo Black - Tsukineko Fibers: white sheer polka dot ribbon - Really Reasonable Ribbon Accessories & Tools: circle, scalloped circle dies - Spellbinders; Copic markers; pearls; White Opal Liquid Pearls, iridescent Stickles - Ranger

One more card to share before I go.  My childhood friend's daughter graduated high school in May of this year.  I received an announcement in the mail, and wanted to send a special keepsake card for the graduate.

Using the announcement, I die-cut the circular panel for the front of the card, matted it with navy, and layered it on an embossed red panel.



I stamped a sentiment from Hero Arts on the inside panel, which reads:  YOU DID IT! Congratulations."  On the inside left, I die-cut a phrase which was in the announcement.  It reads: "The journey of a thousand miles, solely, begins with a single step."

Thanks for taking a peek at my cards today!

Both are lovely cards, Colleen and I'm sure the graduate adored her personalized card.

Your dress card is so pretty and soft, Colleen. The prettiest papers and colors, and I say more power to you for making good use of your stamps. The graduation card is a real keepsake, not to mention beautiful. I love the red, and the embossing is amazing!
