NEW TOYS!!! I picked up a few goodies the other day and I'm so excited that I already had some time to play with them. Today's Free for All Challenge is to make a graduation/congratulation card without the usual cap/diploma/owl http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...a-t555013.html. You should join the challenge; it's a lot of fun!
I started with a piece of white cs and tried out my new MS Caning Pattern punch (cool punch design that allows you to punch on any part of a page!) down the center. I also punched a strip for the horizontal bottom of the inside of the card. I like the Asian feel to the lattice design. I then used my new Sizzix Flourish 9 die to cut the Wild Wasabi flourish/vine and punched some tiny flowers in Pink Pirouette. I added Liquid Pearl centers to the flowers and stamped my sentiment along the other side and my non-traditional graduation card was finished!

Oh my gosh!!! This is amazing! Looks like you know how to use your new toys perfectly!!! LOVE the black and white geometric part and then adding the beautiful green and pink vine and flowers, softens it and makes it so pretty! LOVE the peek at the inside detailing too! Beautiful card!

Very interesting layout for your card. It's different, I like it. The colors you chose are great too!
