Congrats with Dream Pop

What a busy time of the year it is for me!  Graduation is coming up soon - May 18 to be exact.  Plus, in the midst of getting ready for that, we are in the middle of the High School District Softball tournament!  Rain came in Friday night and set in for the weekend so the games were cancelled on Saturday.  My first thought was "YEAH!  I'll spend all day Saturday in my scrap room and create! Nothing better to do on a rainy day!".  Or so I thought....  I ended up spending ALL DAY Saturday shopping with my daughter looking for the required "dark dress" that she needed to wear underneath her graduation gown.  So, we set out about 10:30 to look for a black dress.  Finding a black dress (or even a dark color dress) in May is not easy!   Most that we did find, looked better on the hanger than actually on!  Too long, too short, etc.  FINALLY about 3:30 that afternoon we found the dress.  By the time I got home, I was no longer in the mood to create.  I just wanted to rest my weary feet from all that shopping!

I finally got around to creating a card last night for a friend of ours whose son is graduating also.  I wanted to use the Dream Pop paper so I tried to focus on the orange color (his school color) and added black.

I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  At Friday Mashup the challenge was to make a graduation card and use embossing.   The cardstock in the Dream Pop paper has a nice resist design so I pulled it together by adding embossing to my sentiments.  I used Black Pigment ink along with Clear Detail embossing powder to give it a nice shiny effect.   I tried to keep the accents to minimum since I wanted this to be a masculine card.
