Graduation Balloons


Last night was 8th Grade Graduation and I needed some more cards.  I wanted to go the non-traditional route for a few of them since I have these sets that I just HAD to play with! :)  I did make a bunch of traditional cards too but didn't have enough left.  This card was for a boy and I got the warm color inspiration from my friend Amy's card here.  I did use Ripe Avocado instead of Spring Moss but will have to try this color combination with Spring Moss later. 


I LOVE this Sunshine Impression Plate too!!  It is SOOOO much fun!  Two of the balloons are popped up with pop dots.  The medium balloon has 1/16" pop dots and the large balloon has 1/4" pop dots to give them more depth and make it look like they are closer/farther away from each other.

Thanks for stopping by!  Thank you also to those of you who leave me comments! They really make my day and I appreciate hearing your thoughts so much!
