Just for Nellie!

My cousin's girlfriend, Janelle just received her BA last week & has enrolled in the Radiology program! She is so wonderfully focused on her dreams! I created this graduation card for her today. I heat embossed the butterfly on a piece of acetate & the sentiment is also heat embossed as well.

I think I'll enter this in the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge: Bring on the Bling along with the jac-inks Papercraft Challenge for Heat Embossing. The colors mesh perfectly for the Just Add Ink Challenge of Pear Pizzazz, Baja Breeze, Perfect Plum, & Whisper White. I'll let you in on a little secret. I don't have Perfect Plum in my stash BUT I do have My Digital Studio. I just printed off a sheet of Perfect Plum Script DSP to use on this card. ;)

Supplies: All Stampin' Up! except for the Acetate

Cardstock: Baja Breez, Whisper White

Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Versamark

Stamps: Strength & Hope, Word Play

DSP: Perfect Plum Script

Accessories: Rhinestones, Embossing Powder: Iridescent Ice & Clear, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Big Shot, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, My Digital Studio, Corner Round Punch, Button

Have a fab day!

Julz ;)
