DL.ART Thankful Thursday Challenge #229 Graduation

Hello, blogging friends!
Hoping you are doing well, and enjoying the precious gifts this day brings.

Today I have the pleasure of guest designing for Diana Larson (aka DL.ARTfor her
DL.ART Thankful Thursday Challenge #229. The theme is "Graduation."

Diana's new store is packed with colorful pretties. Check out all her crinkle ribbons here. Today I am using the "Creme Brulee" color from the Creamy Dreamy Bundle which contains 3 fabulously golden-hued ribbons.

My graduation card is done in a vintage style, signifying the end of an era - the old is now past, and a brand new beginning awaits with open arms.

The pretty, textured Creme Brulee ribbon has metallic highlights to bring out those "golden moments" in our lives that have become cherished memories.

That metallic sheen in the ribbon works exquisitely with the gold mirror cardstock.

Pop on over to DL.ART Thankful Thursday Challenge to see the beautiful design team projects, and link up your project as well. Looking forward to seeing your pretties!

Oh, I love the crinkle ribbon! I've crinkled my own in the past, but so much nicer to have it done for you, and such a beautiful look to it. These cream and golden hues are so pretty. A stunning grad card, thoughtfully designed and with great words of wisdom front and center. It's lovely to see these two cards from you today. They are perfect examples of why we all fell in love with this craft!
