Last Graduation Card of the Season - I Think



My daughter asked me to make a graduation card for a friend who just completed her Masters degree. I thought I might as well try a challenge while I was at it. The current challenge at Caardvarks is to create a window card. The aperture was cut and embossed with a Nestabilites oval. I then stamped the image using a fun stamp from Stamping Bella and colored it with Prismas & OMS and Copic glitter pens. I added a ribbon and some self-adhesive pearls. The sentiment is computer generated. This is the first time I submitted a card for a Caardvarks challenge...here's hoping it shows well!!
