Good afternoon. Happy Father's Day to the gentlemen at your house, and Welcome to Stephanie, a new follower from Jingle Bells. Thanks for stopping by to visit & become a follower.

The card today is one I needed for a graduation, & I've used this image before. Just changed up the colors to the school colors of the recipient.

- House Mouse image, colored with copics in the C & E family of colors; B0000, B000 used for background; diecut with S/Binders Label 2; black faux mat with the same die.

- Papers were from a K&Co. graduation pad found at Target.

- Elizabeth Craft die sentiment, (snippet) as was the white background for the sentiment, which was edged with Memento Tuxedo Black and a finger dauber

- tassel on the hat colored with Spica gold pen, glossy accents added to the tassel for shine.

I'm using a new Nikon purchased last week at Costco. I hope I can learn to use it properly and get my photos to show up a bit better. I was checking on Amazon to find the label die name, and when I saw what Amazon is charging for this die (which is an older one), I was sure happy to already have it.*
Edit: I was speaking of the S/B Labels die when I commented about the price. I saw it for $42. on Amazon. Wow!

So have a lovely afternoon, and as always, thanks so much for coming to visit. Hugs.
