To help celebrate, I made him a card. Then I stuck a check into it. Because that's what we do, the uncles.
I made this--
The school colors are navy and orange, so that's where I went with this card. The background to the numbers is actually navy, not black, but you know how navy photographs....
I absolutely LOVE, no LURVE hot air balloons and clouds. Always have. One day, I will go up in a balloon (if Charlie lets me. He's a scaredy cat). In France, please.
oh, but I digress. So....yeah! Balloons, and clouds. So pleasant. So hopeful. So peaceful.
(yeah, I KNOW all about the loud fire thing part. Shhh...)
I always smile about the way a graduating class thinks they OWN the year. The way the guys scream it at each others' faces after the ceremony.....good times. I figured it would do well on the card, big and orange. And, why not stamped with a hounds tooth pattern? Oh yeah, I coated the card stock with clear embossing powder before cutting the numbers. Shiny is good!
Here's another view for depth, and possibly a little better color--
Thanks for stopping by.
Do me a favor and stop the clock for a while, would ya? Or at least slow it down?
