Fabulous Friday - Graduation soon!

Hello everyone.  I hope you have all had a wonderful week.

My apologies for lack of posts lately.  I have been doing a little bit of book folding, and am on book number 5, LOL!  I promise to decorate and post  before I start any more and also do a little bit of normal crafting :-)

Today is the start of a new challenge over at Polkadoodles and our theme for this fortnight is Things with Wings.

I couldn't resist using the new release Twiggy and Toots for my card.  With Emily graduating from Elementary school this year, I thought this would be perfect.

This owly is a pre-coloured image that I have layered up and then I also added my own little scroll in his hands :-)

He is also available as a single digi download Graduation Day.

For the inside I added the same papers and a message panel, with a little stamped owl.

I loved doing the layers and here you can see that little scroll.

I inked all the edges of all the layers with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress ink.

I love the quote and the wonderful ticket sentiments.  Everything is from this wonderful collection.

Also Nikky has started a new themed set of digital images that are available for immediate download on purchase.

Introducing IckyInk Digital images.  This is Oddella in all her glory.  Do you like Zombies and Goth type images? Then these are so cool.  I know someone who would love these ;-)

Aren't they fabulous!  Why not go check out the download store, Nikky is adding so much stuff over there.

This card is being entered in the following challenges.
