Dream Big

>> Wednesday, November 4, 2015

Now that Halloween is over many people forget about Thanksgiving and immediately jump to Christmas. Our local radio station included. They started playing Christmas music on Monday! Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas and all the hecticness that goes with it, but with Fall being my favorite time of year, I like to enjoy the leaves, the pumpkins, the harvest and Thanksgiving itself. 

However, since were on the topic of skipping holidays and seasons, with my post today I thought I would follow suit and skip right to Spring since I'm not a fan of the cold weather, LOL! The card I'm sharing today is for a graduation, complete with Spring colors and all! 
I started by coloring the Hot Air Balloon (583F) with Copic Markers, fussy cut it out, and then matted it as shown.  I created my own pattern paper by stamping the Double Chevron Card Edger (904P) with dark pink ink.  Some blue cardstock and this pattern paper created the card front. Next, I hid the seam between the 2 pieces of cardstock with yellow ribbon tied in a knot to match my color scheme. I stamped the "Dream Big" Graduation Greeting (041F) in the lower right corner and adhered the matted image in the upper left corner. I finished it off by adding rhinestones to the upper right portion. 

So, I guess I already have a head start on greeting cards for 2016!  That's what I love about this last release from DRS Designs--there's so much variety and the themes you can create with them are endless.  I'm sure you've seem already from the awesome cards posted from the rest of the Design Team.  I hope you've enjoyed this release as much as I have!

Have a great day!

How happy and cheerful this card is and it is cute, cute, cute!!! Love the sentiment (I want it). I agree with you that Christmas gets a bit overdone now-a-days, but then it is the best season/holiday to overdue. Hugz!!!
