Graduation Card - Preschool :)

Well today was a very special day....  My niece, Chloe, graduated from preschool!  :)  I have to admit that during the ceremony I was getting a little teary eyed!!!    It was very cute and she looked so grown up (oh here I go again with the misty eyes)....  Anywho, I wanted to create a really special graduation card for her, so I whipped this little beauty up!   I wanted the card to look "sophisticated", but it is for a 5 year old, so I wanted it to have that kid feel to it.  She ended up loving it and that's all that really matters!!! :)

I am also going to enter this into a challenge....  Of course..... :)
365 Cards- Use one technique, one tool, and one embellishment that you are just crazy about on your card 
(My favorite technique is embossing with my Cuttlebug, favorite tool is the Cricut, and favorite embellishment is Stickles)






Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge- card cut at 5.78", graduation kitty cut at 3.62"
Cuttlebug- seeing spots, d'vine swirls
My Pink Stamper stamps-  Spectacular Sayings
Stickles- star dust
Glossy Accents
White gel pen

Thanks for stopping by!!!  Enjoy! :)

Thanks for the comment on my blog! DCWV can be considered an evil company what with their many temptations ... haha.

How cute! Haha, I like your explanation that you wanted it be sophisticated, but it's still really fun!
