Celebrate You Graduation

I made this graduation card for my cousin's son who is graduating this summer and going onto college in the Fall. For the background, I did the Polished Stone technique and I watched this video. For mine, I used Stampin Up ink pads refills and rubbing alcohol onto glossy card stock (I only had Yupo glossy cardstock to use)

Great card! I've chatted a lot about the difficulty of making cards for teen boys this week, but you make it look easy! Terrific background paired surf a silhouette-- perfect! Thank you for sharing at SOS this week. I'll take a note of this one!

Wow, Sherri, what a wonderful silhouette of an exuberant grad! I love the coloured splotches in your background. The technique worked so well and adds to the celebratory theme. Love the simplicity and the perfect sentiment. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
