University Graduation Card

Good afternoon everyone and thank you for stopping by my blog today. 

I was asked to make a card for a daughter who has attained her MA from Cambridge University (some of you may remember be asking on Twitter whether Cambridge colours were Light Blue or Dark Blue). I then had to decide which Promarker Pen was the closest in colour to Cambridge Blue. In the end I opted for "Polar Blue" from the Limited Edition 2012 set of promarker pens
 I opened Serif Craft Artist Pro 2 and used a scroll design to create the backing paper and again, tried to match the blue as close as I could so that it would all blend in.

The topper is from the wonderful collaboration between Polka Doodles and Emma Canning. The 'Digistamp Heaven' CD is available from Polkadoodles website 

The tickets are from another CD called 'Fredericka' by Polka Doodles and I love them. I have a bit of a thing for tickets
 I decided I needed to use some of the stash of flowers in my 'flower box' so out came the hot glue gun and the wire cutters and I created this little flower ensemble in the corner. I added a simply flourish to finish.
To finish the card, I used a sentiment stamp onto a piece of tissue paper. Dabbed some distress inks over the top to age it a bit. I took a little bit of white satin ribbon and dyed it with Polar Blue promarker pen to match the topper and tied it around the scroll. I added a cute owl charm to symbolise being wise. To finish the card I simply added 3 aqua coloured dew drops.

Hope you like it and thank you for stopping by my blog today
