Another 2012 Graduation Card

Hi Guys! I have one more graduation card to share. We have our last graduation to go to tomorrow night and I am told it is going to be very warm on Saturday. I'm hoping it will be cooler by the time we go as it is outside. This particular card was for last week's graduation party and I modeled it after the recipient, my niece. Paper Dolls are so fun to try and match to the person that you are giving the project to. I know that I haven't used all the different accessories on this cartridge. I am always finding new items for many projects. I normally use my Peachy Keen stamps for the face. That is what I get for being in a hurry as I forgot to hide the cut out. I actually think her face is really sweet even though I prefer the PK Stamps:)



I added a piece of blue paper behind the eyes. I also added eyelashes and brows. Using a black micro pen I outlined her clothing, cap and diploma.

Recipe:
A2 card base

Love this-will have to try the blue behind the eyes, since I don't have any PK face stamps. Your paperdoll girl looks so cute!
