For today, I am using the newly release set called Dreams!  I made two graduation cards.  One for a girl and one for a guy!  The exact same layout and stamp set, however, I used different colors and elements.





 For the girl's card, I used stitching, shimmery ribbon, soft pink memory thread with curly ques, and a prima flower to top it all off.  For the sentiment I used the dove stamped off in rose ink for a soft feminine feel.



For the guy's card, I did not use any stitching.  I, instead, went with some warm colors and patterns.  I finished with some frayed burlap ribbon and ivory twine with button.  For the sentiment, I used the olive branch stamped off at the top and the bottom to further emphasize a more manly design. 

Both cards use ODBD Custom Spellbinder's Elegant Ovals die.


As always thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed the hop!  Next up is the ODBD Blog!  Hop on over and answer the question for your chance to Win! 



Betty






Both Cards are using the Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #57
