More Grad Cards

Here is the card I created for the Lilly Pad Challenge. If you haven't been over to Lilly Pad or signed up for their e-mails you should check them out. They have so many wonderful things going on over there. Jump in and check it out here. One of the great things they have over at Lilly Pad are digital download challenges. Here is this month's FREE download.

And here is my card using the film strip, camera and stars.

I used my Silhouette to cut the images. I stamped the stars with white embossing powder using the Hero Arts "Bold Flourish S5146" and inked with Chipped Sapphire distress ink. I used my Copic markers to color the yellow letters and small stars. The "Congrats" sentiment is also from Hero Arts, CL371.

I guess I was on a roll, cause I create a second Grad Card...

I cut the Phrase and Grad Cap on my Silhouette. I used my Copic Marker and a silver colored pencil to color in the phrase. On the white background I used the Hero Arts "Graph" Stamp, S5435 to make it look like a torn page from a spiral bound notebook and the EK border punch.

Have a great week and Thanks for the lovely comments. I really appreciate them!
