Beate's Weekend Challenge #5 & Grad Card




I have a couple projects for you today. The first is for Beate's weekend challenge #5. My card is a little 4 x 4 gate-fold, using the SU Spring mini set Bundle of Joy. I used the new In Colors Blue Bayou and Prints Soft Sky designer paper. I used my Fiskars Mini-Scallop paper edgers for the tiny scalloping.

My second card is a graduation card for my 2nd cousin. The inspiration for this comes from Yvette's card. The image is from Stamping Bella, and it is called Dimplomabella. The designer paper is Au Chocolate from the Spring Mini as well. I colored the dots as Yvette did with markers. I used the Round Tab Punch and Karen Foster Snap stamps for the sentiment. The ribbon is May Arts from Jacksonbelle-Embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by today, and have a wonderful weekend!

These are both super cute - love the blue bear, something different. And your coloring on both is gorgeous. Great idea (from Yvette) to color the dots, going to have to try that sometime!

Both of these are beautiful! I'm lovin' that grad card! The blush on her cheeks and the white gel pen on the diploma really makes a difference!

These are both super! I'm loving the new colors, but I sure love that Real Red on the grad card, too. I've seen the dots colored like that before, but I always forget to do it. Thanks for another reminder! I love polka dots!
