Graduation Time!

Some of the ladies on Scrap of Color decided we needed a challenge on Monday. We were busy chatting when we all wanted to and should have been crafting. So, Tina and Karen decided that our challenge would be to make a graduation card with embossing and an image. Well, I'd already printed out some graduation digis to prepare for the graduates I know, so this challenge got me going! I used Sassy Graduate from Sassy Studio Designs; the digi is currently free for a progressive challenge in the SSD group on PCP.

Here is my first card:

And here's the second one that I actually embossed (and didn't make until Tuesday after the "challenge" was over):

And a close up since easel cards are a beast to try to photograph...

Doodlebug Cap & Gown paper, Stampabilities sentiment, Congrats stamp from Hampton Art

Anyway, I colored these two girls (and another) with my Copics at the same time. In case you want to know, they were colored about the same way with E13/15/17 but the one on the top has a base coat of YG41 while the second was colored first with YR21.
