Graduation Party Invitations


So, my youngest graduates high school later this year.  I can't actually believe that she is old enough, but you can trust me - she's old enough!  It is that time when you fear losing them and eagerly anticipate them leaving - a very odd mixture of emotion.

Either way, I couldn't resist making the invitations for her graduation party.  I asked her to Pinterest something that she liked and we'd use that as a theme.  I actually got these made before I realized the stripes and color combination are all very Kate Spade.  A huge thank you out to Kate Spade, I guess.

The stripes were stamped from homemade strips of fun foam cut into stripes and temporarily adhered to my MISTI.  I had to stamp multiple times to get those solid black lines, but I did it - 45 times!  The flowers are made using my Peony Bouquet stamp and dies - they are really lovely, don't you think?!


There will be more party stuff, I just need to get a few other activities out of my way.  I'll hope to post those projects soon.

I'm going to enter this card into the May Photo Inspiration challenge over at Altenew's blog and into Word Art Wednesday's challenge week 282/283: Anything Goes.

Thank you so much for your kind words. Isn't it fun to encourage one another, even from a distance?
