Graduation Card in Purple and Gold

Hi, Friends......

I'm here to share a graduation card I made for a friend to celebrate receiving her Master's degree.  Hooray,  Christy!!!  Congratulations!!!!  

Christy loves purple, so I decided on a complementary color scheme.  The paper is DCWV and K&Co. I also used some fun graduation embellishment stickers that I just recently found in a sale bin at JoAnn's.  Didn't know I'd be using them so soon!  

I also used some neglected oval stencils for the pieces around the gown.  This was the perfect excuse to use this stencil set!


Here's the sketch I followed from the current Sketch N Stash Sketch Challenge.  I haven't done very many sketch challenges, so this was a lot of fun.

Here's a side angled shot to show you the dazzling embellishments.  Love the metallic shine!

Hope you enjoyed this card.  Have a lovely week!!!
