It's graduation/promotion time around here. Surprisingly, I was blessed to have a teenager commission a card from me for her to give to her sister that is being promoted from middle school into high school. Sometimes being commissioned to make a card is easy-peasy but other times I over think the situation and get designer's block. Well, this time around I kinda pressured myself to come up with something fun and appropriate. Using the word "graduation" with a sentiment stamp just won't do for for middle school promotion. Anyhow, the only thing she mentioned was that her sister loves roses and that she wanted something special. So here's my custom creation just for her. It's a "Promotion" Bella with roses in her hand adorned with a subtle amount of bling and silver flourishes a top the designer paper that I whipped up off the computer. Inside I stamped "Congratulations" with a very cool flourish script. To complete the card I stamped an envelope to match. You can see part of it peeking out behind the card in my photo. YIKES! I'm nervous about this one... I hope my little ditty doesn't disappoint and that she will want me to make more cards for her in the future.
