Another Graduation Card!

 A closer look at the image!
 A look at the details!
 The left inside of the card!
 The right inside of my card!
For some reason, I had thought I would not need any graduation cards this year. I guess the kids at church are growing up much too fast for me. Anyway, I spent today making four cards. Because I did not want to purchase another image that I only use once a year and then not every year. I used the same Saturated Canary image on all four cards. (Just warning you as I will be posting each card separate!) I tried to play with my dies and use them in different ways. I admire those wonderful craft artists who can manipulate their dies in unexpected ways. Anyway this card was composed of lots of scraps! I had just a bit of red ribbon, a pocket watch sticker and the DP all came from the scrap box. The inside sentiment if from "Our Daily Bread" and the other sentiment was from a close out bin. I colored my image with Copics and added some Stickles for sparkle. The flowers are from Wild Orchard Crafts. 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: You Gave Me Love (BJ Thomas)
You gave me time when no one gave me time of day,
You looked deep inside while the rest of the world looked away,
You smiled at me when there were just frowns everywhere,
You gave me love when nobody gave me a prayer.
That's why I call You Saviour..... That's why I call You Friend,
You touched my heart..... You touched my soul,
And helped me start all over again,
That's why I love You, Jesus..... That's why I'll always care,
You gave me love when nobody gave me a prayer.

Wow....another beautiful graduation card. I have one to do and have yet to do, but my computer hard drive died so all of my images can not be reached. That is a beautiful die. Understand about not have many theme images. I agree, and trying to be more careful on my purchasing.
