STAMPTACULAR # 115 Dads or Grads

This week at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge we have a choice for you to make a card or project suitable for either "Dads or Grads".
I opted to make a card for middle daughter (pictured here with her Dad) who recently made us so proud when she was awarded a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. Our sponsor this week is the amazing My Favorite Things who have so many gorgeous stamps to choose from and are offering one lucky randomly picked entrant an amazing $25 gift certificate.    My Favorite Things stocks, amongst other images, loads of Pure Innocence.   Don't you just love those cuties.   Sadly I think the Pure Innocence image I picked for my card has now been retired but MFT do have a very similar one on their website.
I used a very simple layout for my card; deciding on Stampin Up papers and a bold red mount.   I altered the robes of the image slightly to better mimic the actual dress worn by Laura on the day of her graduation and also extended the girl's hair with my Copics.  Two Autum Leaves' tickets, a sentiment by Fiskars, some Craftworks Candy and a little hand made doctorate scroll finish it off.

Wow, I'm not surprised you are proud, I have to think about spelling Doctorate, let alone the subject your daughter did it in! ;) This is a fab card, the colours work really well with the image, who has an uncanny resemblance to your daughter! Fancy that! xxx
