Happy Gorjuss Graduation!

My dear friend graduated from college today! She is also my car pooling buddy so I am truly going to be lost next year without her! Her favorite color is pink and when I found some black and pink zebra ribbon the other day I knew I had to buy it to make her Graduation card! I found this diploma looking card in a magazine and thought it was super cute so I thought I would give it a try!
And what card is complete without a Gorjuss Girl on it! Of course I had to make her a Gorjuss Graduation Girl!!! Here is the inside of the card:
And a close up of Miss Gorjuss in her Graduation Cap!
And here is the inside of the card with the small card that I added to the envelope!
Yes, I just can't get enough of those fabulous paper flowers that I have been creating!
Are you getting sick of seeing them yet?
Don't you love it when your end product turns out even better than what you have planned in your head? That is very much how I felt when I finished this one and couldn't wait to get to the party to give my friend her card....which by the way she loved! YAY! Love it when that happens!

My final exams are now all done! I am so relived and just anxiously awaiting my grades now....but am so happy that how it is crafty time for me! I can't wait to share more fun projects with you and get back to blogging....I have been really out of the loop lately! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!
