The Tassel is Worth It

Hi all!  I'm currently on vacation visiting family but wanted to share a card that I made for a friend- I gave her 3 custom cards as her Christmas gift and she asked for me to make one that was a cool graduation card.  The main thing she asked was if I could find an awesome image that had a more urban feel and some big, super cool hair- I instantly thought of this image Bling Baby by Kenny K.  I colored her up and paired her with a pretty background of a cityscape and sunset for a clean and simple card.  The sentiment is one I saw online and then just typed up in Word.  The best part was when I delivered the card my friend flipped over how similar the image looked to her friend- I love it when people see the card and say it's a perfect match to who they wanted it for :)  Thanks so much for stopping by to visit and for taking a look at this little blog of mine- ya'll rock!

 **Gasp** Sorry everyone- I can't believe it but I forgot to write down my colors!  Please, don't throw rotten tomato's, lol!
