I needed a graduation card and decided this little teddy was perfect for celebrating such a great accomplishment. And I went bold and bright with the colors. One of our universities is black and yellow so I accented those colors but added some fun ones too! The arrow is from Heidi Swapp and is naturally white, I colored it with a yellow Copic and added glossy accents. LOVE! A few colorful enamel accents finishes it off.

I also used Jennifer McGuire's trick of wrapping the word banner around the card and then cutting two fishtails and adhering - she uses this trick often (you can see it in THIS video, about the 10:50 mark).

Hope you have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
