Congratulations with Heather

Good morning! Heather here stopping by to share a card that I put together using some inspiration from a morning devotional I have been doing. I also have had some requests for graduation cards, and while this one isn't super specific to that use, it would work perfectly for it I think! I used In Bloom: Elsa's Florals to build the floral swag on the top combined with a bit of masking, and added a sentiment from Parentville Extras:


Here was my inspiration - I was using it as a lockscreen on my cell phone, so the right side was cut off, and every time I turned my phone on I was looking at this and feeling inspired - so I finally sat down to play, and I'm so glad I did!


Once I masked and stamped my picture, I used watercolors to color the images in, added a few splatters, and stamped my sentiment. Trimmed the size down slightly, then mounted with foam over a diagonal stripe background pattern paper to help make it pop.


Thanks for stopping by - have a wonderful day!
