~Class of 2015~

Hello blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. It was a hot and humid Saturday here in Pittsburgh. We went to my nephew's high school graduation party. It is always a good time with the extended family.
I am also taking care of my son and daughter-in-law's dog for a week. They left today for the beach. So it will be an adventure with Apollo and I. We don't have any pets and already I see they are a lot of work.
He doesn't like going out in the back yard to run by himself. So I sit with him (lol). He chases the birds and butterflies and plays with his toys. We went for a walk today and he did good with me. I was concerned about that. He is a very strong dog and quite energetic.
Hubby and I are staying here tonight and tomorrow we head back to our home with the dog. He keeps going to the window and looking out. I know he misses his family. I am hoping that he will be okay in my home. If not we will come back here and stay.  
So now onto my card for today. This is the card I made for my nephew. His school colors and green and white with black accents. I started with my layout which is the sketch challenge #544 on Splitcoaststampers.
The card background is garden green. I wanted some texture but couldn't find my stars embossing folder. So I decided to use the Stampin'-Up alphabet press embossing folder. I thought it worked well.
My black angled strip is cut with the star die from the MFT Blueprints 18 dies. The "grad cap and class of" are dies also from MFT graduation accents set. The 2015 is also a die from MFT. I cut the sentiments and grad cap 3x and layered for more dimension.
Well, that's it for me for today. So until next time.......God bless.

card details:
Paper: basic black, garden green, white Paper Size: A2
Accessories: graduation accents, little numbers, blueprints 18 (MFT), Spellbinders matting Basics A & B , alphabet press (Stampin'-Up)
