Graduation card

Hello again!
 
I'm still playing catch up with the cards I've made over the summer
and the one I'm sharing today is the Graduation card I made for my nephew.
 
 
I used a fab wee freebie image from  Digistamp Boutique's Facebook page and I coloured it with Copics.
The papers are by My Mind's Eye and they're called Kraft Funday Happy Days.
They were all layered on a white card blank.
 

 
The sentiment is printed on kraft card and I raised the centre with pinflair glue gel.
 
 
To personalise it for my nephew I added titles to the books using wordart.
He graduated in Pharmacy so I squeezed that title onto the top book :)
After fussy cutting around the coloured image I raised it on kraft card with foam pads.
 
Thanks again for coming to visit!
I'll be back tomorrow with a card I made for my Mum's birthday.
 
Take care
Sarah xx
