Congrats



My Chemo Buddy has completed her IV chemo so is graduating from Chemo Angels so I wanted to make her a cheery uplifting card to send with a little graduation gift.   Image is from Great Impressions, card stock from Amuse, not sure on the die cut window and curtains, and the rest from my stash.  I watercolored the bear and balloons after embossing on Stratmore watercolor paper with Zig markers, and then did a watercolor wash on the background with Distress Inks.  Closer view is below.


A few fun challenges:

It's a very happy & colorful card, to brighten up your friend's day with the milestone she's reached. It's simply adorable, and your w/coloring is so good! Love the window treatment and that lovely paper. TFS & Hugs (and best wishes to your friend for her full recovery).

This is just too cute - I have a window die but just never thought to use it this way. More inspiration to add to my must do memory bank. Very nice card for your chemo buddy graduation.
