Susan is a very trendy and elegant gal so I had to create a card that would suit her style!
This awesome flower/feather embellishment is from K&Co. The sentiment and circle stamps are both Papertrey Ink. The red paper in the back is from my scrap pile. It is lovely paper - the red is all velvety.
The layout is from the KLSNS #36 challenge.
Thanks for dropping in.

You might remember THIS post when I was doing my strawberry week. Well, here is the card that I mentioned that was a similar layout but made with apples instead of strawberries.
These apples are very easy to create. Punch a circle of light yellow cardstock. Sponge on a few colors of read being sure to leave the "hightlight" part. Add a hand cut leaf and stem that are also sponged with the appropraite color!
Truthfully, you could use any fruit or vegetable that you want: lemons, bunches of grapes, oranges, carrots, pears (sorry Susan!!), peaches ... just cut the shape to be appropraite and sponge appropriately!!
The rest of the card is very straight forward. The letters are from Trajan Monogram Set (Papertrey Ink) and the sentiment is from Limitless Labels (Papertrey Ink).
Thanks for dropping in.

I started out by stamping the smallest dots from Polka Dot Basics onto some vanilla cardstock using Tea Dye (Distress Inks) ink. Then I did some stitiching around the panel with my sewing machine and some tan thread. I added that to a white mat. Then, I created my focal piece. The flower (from smARTworks) was stamped and cut out. I colored it with ink and Copic markers. Adhered that to the oval, added the eyelet and hemp. The rectangle focal piece is popped up on dimensionals!
The picture doesn't do a great job of sharing the true colors (I still need to buy better lights for my photo box). The actually colors are a soft yellow, peachy pink, white, and kraft. They look quite pretty in real life.
Hope you are all enjoying your week. I have an official count down until I'm done work. Just 5 work days to go. Woooohooooo!!!!

As you can all see, I have made some changes to my blog! With that comes "fixing up" things that might have changed. For example, Lindsey commented that she could no longer get enlarged pictrures when she clicks on them.
I am hoping that if any of you notice such things you leave a comment telling me about it so I can try to fix it!
Lindsey, I have tried to correct the problem. When I click on the photos, they enlarge for me. Can you check to see if it works for you. Can some others out there try it as well and let me know if it works for you too.

This is my second post of graduation cards. Go to yesterday's post to see the others.
Today's cards are my favorite 2 of the 5 I made.
For this card I found a clip art photo of a football player. The boy who this card is for is a football player so I hope his mom likes this one.For this next card, I created a faux medallion focal point. It is a very clean and simple card - very guy like!
