You Make the Grade

Happy weekend, all! It looks like we are going to have a gloomy one here in the Bay Area. Hope yours is a beautiful sun shiny one! =) Here is a card that I made using a stamp from the newly released Back 2 School collection from Whiff of Joy Stamps.

I used the beautiful You Make the Grade for my card. She is so pretty and chic!

I stamped her on Copic X-Press It cardstock then colored her with Copic markers. The image is then cut and embossed using a Petite Ovals Small die. The sentiment panel is cut and embossed using the smallest die from the same die set.

The patterned paper is from my Soiree Card Kit. You can use the scraps/leftovers for other projects or you don't even have to make any cards in the kit. Just use it on your own projects! =) I love the chic colors and patterns in the Soiree collection and thought that they would be perfect for this image. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and the pretty blue/teal pearl brad is also from Whiff of Joy Stamps.

That's it for today. Have a beautiful day! =)
