Grad parties and invites galore. Glad all those grad card challenges were weeks ago!

Give thanks for Great Dads.  This is my Father's day card for Creative Belli Challenge #67 (A sketch that needed to also be a Father's day card).  And for Created by Hand, a Father's day card.  My Dad has the most beautiful lawn.  So I thought I would commemorate his handy yard work in his card.
Movie Inspired Card is the theme at Cuttlebug's Challenge blog.  I used the border stitch embossing folder.  The quote is from Steal Magnolias.  One of my favorite movies.  That little girl looks a little serious about her dolls and I was thinking pink and that quote popped into mind.
Back to 1956 with this card.
Wednesday stamper's theme for today is FASHION.  These gals were certainly doing their best.  The words pin up and cheers are stamped.  The dots are from Endless Creations.
R is for Roses at the ABC blog.
This is a LAA image and sentiment.  But I cut out one of the girl's arms and tucked one of the roses under her arm.
365 Cards Day 102 was to combine 3 challenges from 3 months.  
From May I used Day 80-You're so plaid.
From April I used Day 37-Dress up some chip board.  The flowers are chip board with LAA images on them.
From March I used Day 31 I'm rounding a Corner, no square edges.
This was a fun card to make and a great challenge.
For Tag it on at Dragon's Dream the challenge is TREASURE.  What do you treasure.  Since I am a Christian, I thought God would be my 1st treasure.  So I did some inking, embossing and layering of words.
