Just a quick post of a graduation card I made back in June…before all the summer “we’re having house guests and the house needs to be in perfect shape” projects (which I’ll save for another post!)

I love this image but don’t get to use it all that much.  This is probably the 3rd time I’ve coloured it and I feel like I’m getting a little better at colouring it every time (I love Penny Black stamps but find them challenging to colour):

The paper and the buttons are Basic Grey from an assortment of lines (well, I think the paper is Oxford but the buttons are ancient so who knows which lines they’re from).

Note the difference in thickness of the twine.  The really thick yellow stuff (on the red button) is miss caroline by My Mind’s Eye.  I actually wish it was a little thinner as it’s hard to thread through a button.  The red is Martha Stewart and the blue was purchased from Paper Smooches – not sure what line they carry but I like it the most of the three types of baker’s twine.  Just sayin’.
