Graduation and SRM Challenge

One of my favorite products - SRM Stickers - has started a challenge blog.  I am just sliding in under the deadline.  I am trying to get back in the mode of making cards.  Their first challenge is Celebrations.

Graduating from college with your master's degree is one reason to celebrate.  This card is for my graduate assistant.  In honor of Earth Day - all the paper used is from recycled commencement programs.  I was so happy when they switched from the purple covers to white covers - so much more versatile for making card bases.  I combined several stickers from SRM Stickers along with a stamped sentiment from Stampendous.  I was lucky to have these purple toned pearls sent to me by my good friend Ivanka.


Everyone have a wonderful evening.  I guess it is time to start thinking about work tomorrow and getting things together.
