Hats Off to You!

This weekend my niece, Madeleine, graduates from high school.  I still can't get over that she will be going to college in the fall. Time certainly flies and I am so proud of her.  My mum had also asked me to make a card for Madeleine and her neighbor's son.  A trio of graduation cards...all using the same Clear & Simple Grad stamp set.

First up...my card for Madeleine.  Playing along with two challenges:  CAS-ual Fridays and Just Us Girls. I thought the rainbow with a little bling was perfect!
My second card...for my mum's neighbor.
And my third...more bling!  This one is for Madeleine from my mum....
Which one is your favorite?

Super cards Lynn... I think my favorite is the first one:) Love the rainbow of colours and the scoring.

Tough call as they're all awesome... I think the first one wins out though as I do love a good rainbow! The scored lines frame it perfectly and the bling gives it just the right sparkle! :)

Barb said...

Love all three, Lynn!

Arlene said...

They are all really nice but my vote goes for the first one. Very eye catching and beautiful! Great job.
