My daughter is in her third year of getting her Doctorate Degree at Yale and just before we went out and visited her back in October she had went through her first Comprehensive tests and she did very well, so I just had to make her a card to take with me to Congrats her on her achievement.

I used a new Spellbinder stamp and die set that I had coloring it with markers.  The sentiment is also a stamp and die combo.

Spellbinders - Flower Bouquet stamp and die set, colored w/markers
Papertrey ink - Hodge Podge paper
Lawn Fawn - Big Scripty words die and stamp set
Wink of stella - clear glitter pen

As we were walking around Yale my daughter said oh that is where I had to go for my Comprehensive test and interview and so I had her stand in front of the doors and got her picture (you can see my hubby in the reflection of the door window)

Hard to believe that my little girl will soon be turning 30, she has a lot of plans for her life and I hope they all work out for her.

Thanks so much for stopping by today,

You should be very proud of your daughter and, of course, you are! What a gorgeous card! I didn't know Spellbinders had such pretty stamp and die combos. This is soooo beautiful with your coloring and the neutral-color patterned base. I just love it!
