Graduation time

 Other than making something for the

 Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge # 503

I had no real plans for today's card.  But after I chose the papers, stamped the butterfly first on cs and then on green velum, fussy cut it,  popped it on the inside oval, chose the stick-on 'take flight' sentiment,  and added the bow, it occurred to me that it would make a nice graduation card for a certain young lady who will soon be receiving her nursing degree.  

All it needed was the "Congratulations" 

The oval dies are by Spellbinders and the word die by Elizabeth Craft Designs.  The butterfly stamp was a freebie by Sheena Douglas from a Quick Cards magazine.  The take flight sticker was a freebie that came with my last order from Stamplorations.  Gotta love those freebies!

This is the sketch from TSOT that I was following:


The Design Team for Try Stampin' On Tuesday Challenge really did an outstanding job with their sample cards this week.  Several are fancy folds.  If I hadn't visited one of their blogs, I never would have known that one of the cards is actually a gate fold.  So, if you have some time, I'd suggest making a few visits and collecting a few tips from this talented group.
