It's a Mid May Monday!

Well, not quite Monday, but in a couple of hours it will be!

We've had a really windy weekend! I felt sorry for my little hummingbirds! I hope they hung on! They sure needed to! Other than that, it's been a great week!

I don't have a lot to chat about - relief, huh? LOL But, I do have a card to share with you. I made another graduation Tilda. This time, it's a girly version. The primary paper is a lovely black with silver swirls. So, I kept the black and silver theme throughout.
The flash sort of bleached out Tilda, but you get the idea.

This is the cover of the card. I used some silver ink to tip the flowers. There are also some silver roses. The sentiment tag has been elevated on pop dots.



This is the inside of the card. Again, I used the black and silver swirl paper as well as some black floral paper. The punched border strip is done on silver foil cardstock, but it looks white. There is a cap and diploma charm hanging in the loer right corner.



This is the inside, lower half, of the card. I've used a Magnolia stamp and added a cute little graduation themed charm suspended from the flowers.



Thank you so much for visiting. I so appreciate the time you took to do so.

XO,
Chris
