Purple Grad Card

Purple Grad photo SSSCpicA-2.jpg 

It has been forever since I've played along with Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and glad I was able to change that.  She has such wonderful sketches.

This week's sketch was perfect for the commissioned grad card I had to make.  The grad's favorite colour is purple and she loves sparkle, so that was the theme as I worked on this card.  Thankfully, I managed to find some purple in my stash as it is not a colour I often use - phew!

Used Verve's Dream Big and the coordinating Dreamy Leaves and Scalloped Flowers dies, along with PTI's number border die for the 2014.  Hoping she likes it!

Thanks for popping in today, and hope you have a great day.

Paper:    Elegant Eggplant, Mint Medley, Almost Amethyst (Stampin' Up)

I do happen to like purples and lilacs and I think your card is absolutely gorgeous. I'm sure the recipient will love it as well.

What a pretty grad card. I love the flower center.
I have to make a grad card for my niece today or tomorrow and as I've been thinking about it the past couple of days, I knew I didn't want to do the traditional type or have the word grad or graduation on it at all. Your card has inspired me to just go with what was in my heart. Thanks for sharing this gorgeous card.
