Some of you may know that my daughter, Alyssa, is graduating college this week!!! Whoo Hoo! Go girl!!! I am so proud of her. She has had a wonderful 4 years at A&M University and is now focusing on getting into nursing school. She is graduating with a degree in Nutrition, but has always wanted to go into nursing and then further to Nurse Practitioner, so....... her school is not done, but she has her start. I made her this card to encourage her to strive to her dreams. I always tell her that the world is at her feet, she just has to make something of it.
Anyhow, on to my card haha! I used the very adorable Tilda that I got from Magnolia Sweden and colored her with my Distress Marker FINALLY!!! Hello!!! I had been waiting on those suckers for far too long haha! I'm a bit rushed today, but will give details later on for using them. I did struggle a bit I must say eek!
I almost NEVER do insides, I know, so sad, but I did for her card to finish out the sentiment. Yep, glitter, glitter everywhere haha. I cleaned it up after I took the photo.
I used the Milled Lavender marker for her outfit which is a totally different color than my reinker. Thank goodness, because my reinker is NOT lavender at all, but a greyish color, so this is more true to what I think of for lavender.
