Off to Uni

My eldest grand-daughter is off to Uni soon - and she is turning 19 on the 10th! she took a Gap Year between College and Uni and is ready to go back to study now to be a primary teacher! Here is the card I made her. I am going to enter it in a number of challenges and as I know she does not read my blog that often I will chance it that she does not see it before she gets it!

The stamp is a Sparkles image called Cocktail Emily.  I used Copics to colour her in. The sentiments are a mixture of WMS and Verve stamps.


The dies used were Spellbinders Nestabilities and Die-namics numbers for the 19, and for the paper lace strip. The tag is a Sizzix die.  The hearts were punched from SU Poppy Parade.  The background is sponged in Memento inks - Summer Sky and New Sprout. The bling is from my stash and is probably Kaiser. The card used is all SU (Poppy Parade, Pink Pirouette and Bashful Blue) except for the one the image is on, as this is XPress Blend-It and stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black.  The inks used for sponging the edges was SU Poppy Parade and Soft Suede, and the latter was used for the sentiments.  The background paper is from Basic Grey's Out of Print. The is sparkle added with the Spica pens but its a bit hard to see in the photo. 


This is inside it - The stamps used here are from Verve. 
The challenges are:

CR84FN #47 - Pink, Red and Light Blue
Cropstop #56 - numbers (may have missed this one)
Annabelle's - Say it with ....Hearts (with033)
Papercraftstar #83 - Hearts
