Whimsical Congratulations

Hello everyone,

I hope your week is going well.   I was in the middle of creating this card when I decided it would work well for one of my granddaughter's high school graduation. 


The background is Dylusions inks with lots of stamping and stenciling.  

The pretty lady and the flower circle behind her are Kico stamps (plate 65) designed by Marja. I have other sets designed by Marja that I'm looking forward to playing with.

The die cut flowers are by Heartfelt Creations (from the Vintage Floret set).


Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend,
Shirleyx
