Pick up

When I was making this card I kept picking up stuff off my desk and using them. That is not to say you can really find my desk yet but it is slightly better, very slightly. :)


My niece graduated from high school this year. The colors are red and gold. I love that combination, maybe because I went to the same high school. 
Tilda is colored with copics with a few highlights with a white pen. The tassel is yellow stickles and the shoes have diamond glaze on them. The words and the tiny flowers around the image are from some old angel company stamp sets. The die cuts are from memory box. The pearl sprays, rose felt flower and lace are what were laying about. The flower is felt done with a memory box die. There are stickles on the petals. The papers are from lots of different companies. 
I am entering this in a challenge to use lace over at magnolia-licious 

Hope you enjoy.
