Simple Graduation Card

Made this quickly for a girl at church.  Her school colors are red & black.  The cap is attached with a potdot but I think it lacks something but I'm not sure what.   Oh well. It's done and it's almost time to leave.

Motarboard Design - Free from SVGCuts, Cut with With Sure Cuts A Lot.
Cuttlebug Folder - Divine Swirls
Card Base - DCWV
Stamp - Unknown

Kick up your heels!

 I made this card for a friend who was about to run in her first 5K.  I cut the running shoe using my Cricut Expression and SCAL (older version that still works with Cricut) and a free SVG file of a running shoe downloaded a few years ago from SVGCuts.  I chose the colors based on ones in a pair of shoes she owns.  Both the sentiment and the inside verse ("Remember Running into the wind will only make you stronger") were done on the computer but based off of stamps from My Pink Stamper.  The embossing is the Cuttlebug folder herringbone.

My Pink Stamper NSD Challenge #11

This challenge required making something using green, pink and black. I made another card similar to the Mother's Day Card. I'm always thinking about make a card to send someone to cheer them up or something and never get around to it. Now I have one ready to go. I've actually had these stamps for months but never got around to using them.

Card base: DCWV
Flower Stamp: Sweet n Sassy Stamps - poppies
Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug Victoria
Ribbon: Offray
Colored Pencils: Prismacolor
