Congrats Grad


I needed a card for a college graduate...a sweet girl who sings on our church praise team and also does some solos. She's a girly girl, so I went with a shabby chic style card using Jen's Sketch For You To Try for the month of May. I dyed white seam binding with pink Glimmer Mist and crinkled it to give it a vintage feel.  Some lace from Flourishes and stitching - both straight and zigzag - were added.  This verse from Jeremiah is a fave of mine to use with graduation cards, so I added it to the inside of the card.

I'm also entering this into the CR84FN53 challenge where I was inspired by this photo collage using the colors pink, aqua and neutrals.
What else did I use?
STAMPS: Small Celebrations (Verve), Jeremiah 29:11 (Verve), For the Graduate (PTI).
PAPER: 5th Avenue by Melissa Frances, White
INK: Versafine Onyx Black, Antique Linen distress ink
ACCESSORIES: Labels Twenty Three Nestie, Ironworks Accents by SB, Lace, Seam binding, Rhinestone, Circle Nestie, Distressing tool.
