Happy Graduation!

My niece is graduating in a couple of weeks!  Where has the time gone?  This is the card I made for her.  The colors are fun and happy....just like her!  The colors came from the Color Coach.  It's the Pear Pizzazz Creative Combination.

Did you notice the flower made with the new Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch from the Summer Mini?  I love this punch!  I find that it punches much better if I place it on the table and stand up while I punch down (more weight behind it).  Also, if your paper sticks after you punch, just pull down slightly on the edges of the paper.  It usually pops right out.  That sounds like a lot of work, but it really isn't.  I was hesitant to purchase it, but I am so glad I did!

Here's what I used:
