So Proud of You

I made this late Friday night, but have not had time to post it yet.
After snow flurries on Thursday, I wasn't about to waste
the wonderful weather we had this past weekend.
This card is for my niece who just passed her driver's test.
I used the fabulous sketch by Deanna Jean at Retro Sketches
(unfortunately I missed this deadline) and colors at 
Play Date Cafe.  I will also be entering this card
at A Passion for Papertrey for their "Let's Celebrate"
challenge.  This is my second for that challenge; my
first one is in my previous post.  I am also entering it at
Simon Says Stamp where this week ~ anything goes.

Supplies ~
Stamp:  PT Script Sentiments
Paper:  PTI White, Sweet Blush & Melon Berry; Patterned paper by Doodlebug Design inc.  - Flower Box 
      6 X 6 Pad

  1. Beautiful card Jean, I love ever detail and those colours are perfect. I need to know what type of die cutting machine you have. Love those Mums but I have such a hard time cracking them through my Cuttlebug.

    1. I have a Sizzix Big Shot, but it doesn't work with only one pass, and I also have to use either paper or acetate shims (usually 3), and then it is really hard to crack through the Big Shot.

  2. A fabulous card Jean - your design really captures the feel of the inspiration photo. Love the flowers!
