Commencement 2017

Hi there ~ Happy Mother's Day! 
A quick post to share a card I created for this week's CASology Challenge 





Here is my card:


I don't think I've ever used these PTI numbers and thought it would be a great time to include them on this 4"x9" card. The blooms are from the Altenew 'Garden Treasure' stamp set and colored with Copic markers. The graduation cap was cut with my Cameo. I stacked the numbers 3 times to add dimension and placed a thin black border all around. I also added mini pearls to the center of the lavender blooms...And that was it for me :)
I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend ~

Thanks so much for stopping by,

This is a beautiful graduation card, Barb. I didn't think about making a bigger card when I used some numbers so I stacked them. I like yours better for a feminine card.
