TTIC#31!!! Graduation!!

Hello everyone!! It is spring now and the talk is centered around up coming graduation parties!! I dont have anyone I know graduating right now, my cousins are all older and my children arent that old yet!

The Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge this week is from Rebecca! Thanks rebecca!!! This is a great challenge!!!
"One of my most favorite scenes in the movie occurs when Edward is showing his home to Bella for the first time. As they go up the stairs, they pass a huge frame full of graduation caps.
Bella asks “Graduation caps?” and Edward replies “Private joke. We matriculate a lot“.
I loved that part of the movie too!! That cute smile he gives and turns his head....love it!

Craft portion: Create a project suitable to give as a graduation gift!
Comment portion: Reminisce about your graduation … or an upcoming graduation for someone in your life.
I never graduated high school but i did go to my cousins graduation in 1999 and that was pretty neat!

I decided to keep my focus on Bella and Edwards Graduation! Obviously they had other things on their minds at the time but the party was a memorable time and the Yellow gowns...ewww! I would look horrible in that color too! :) I believe Beth is the one who said the Forks colors are Blue and Gold so I used those colors with black thrown in for fun for my projects! Thanks Beth for your wonderful research!!!!
Since Bella loves Edward's music and it is something they share that they like that is his gift to her for Graduation! and a card to go with it! So I decorated a CD case and made a coordinating card!
I made the pattern with the flourish stamp from Unity's Birdie Inspiration set, I used Pacific Point, Basic Black and More Mustard ink and stamped onto a panel of Whisper white cs that I "aged" with more mustard and river rock ink for a vintage gold look. The sentiment is "Life is a dream realize it" from the same set. I added my new fav ribbon technique and layered all onto shiny blue cs, black cs and then onto a WW card base.
Stamps Used: Birdie Inspiration-unity Stamp co
Papers Used: Whisper white SU, blue cs, black cs
Ink Used: Pacific Point, basic black, more mustard, river rock SU
Accessories Used: Black striped ribbon, sponge, sticky strip
This matching CD insert is made the same way as the card above, The sentiment is "life is a song sing it" Fitting I think! :) Ribbon technique along the edge.
Stamps Used: Birdie Inspiration-Unity stamp co
Papers Used: Whisper white
Ink Used: Pacific point, more mustard, basic black, river rock SU, versamark
Accessories Used: Black stitched ribbon, sticky strip
Here they are together.
