Another Graduation Card

We received a late graduation announcement so I had to put together a quick card.  I wanted to use the lime green report card piece from the Jillibean Soup Alphabet Soup collection so I went in search of something appropriate for the background.  I orginally had in mind something from the older Ki Memories collections in black and white.  I never found what I was looking for (note to self: patterned paper needs a major reorganization) but I did find a very old sheet of ProvoCraft paper with colorful numbers on it.  I thought it fit the school theme I was going for.  Of course this meant I had a lot more colors to deal with but it actually fits the personality of the recipient so it all worked out.  I stamped my cute Sugar Nellie image with Memento ink onto PTI cardstock, then colored it up with Copic markers.

  1. Cute card! You'd never know that was "old" paper; it makes a great background for your image.
