Marquee Message for Rachael

This weekend my niece Rachael will be graduating from High School.  Here she is pictured with her grandparents and her "Big" little brother at her Baccalaureate ceremony.

Rachael lives in Washington State so sadly we are not able to attend her graduation.  I put a card and some leis in the mail yesterday in hopes they will arrive in time for her graduation ceremony and party.  

Here is the card I created for Rachael.

The Marquee message set is great because it comes with a variety of messages that you can customize for the recipient.  Not only does this card uplift and encourage the recipient but on the inside it says, "So very proud of you" which makes it perfect for celebrating an event such as a graduation.   The color scheme for this card was easy because I followed Rachael's school colors, Red and Black.  I don't normally use this many pearls on a card but I was inspired by this amazing card I saw on Kim Williams blog last week.

Kim is an amazing stamper.  I really admire her unique style.  I often tease her that I can tell when I get a card from her in the mail because it weighs 5 lbs but aren't all her layers beautiful?  I love her use of the fine tip glue pen to create some dimension and shine on the letters.  You can read her post about this card by clicking here.

I am really loving this new Marquee Message stamp set.  Its unique and fun and so versatile.  I was glad I could use it to create a customized Graduation card for my neice.  I hope that Rachael will like this card and know how proud we are of all she's accomplished.
