Hello! Happy weekend!

I spent this beautiful morning with my family at my niece's high school graduation!
I can't believe how fast time flies by! I remember the day she was born like yesterday!!!
She has turned into a beautiful young lady..inside and out!

I wanted to make her a special Graduation card, so when I saw Marisa Ritzen's card for the Dare Diva Verve challenge, I was totally inspired!
I followed her sketch, but used different papers and few tiny changes!

Here is my card:

And the inside:

I had so much fun making this card!
Probably because it was being made for my special girl!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Stamps: Sentiment Sampler (Paper Smooches)
Paper: Reflections by Lori Whitlock (Echo Park)
Dies: Stitched Stars and Stitched Circles (Lil Inkers)
          Party Banner (Simon Says Stamps)
Ink: Frayed Burlap (Ranger Distress Ink); Versafine Black

Congrats to your niece. I can understand why she liked this card so much. It's fabulous a "wow" card. I just purchased some new star dies (Another NBUS) that I need to use...You have inspired me.
