I used one of Lauren's sketches, tweaked just a bit for this grad card. I love the fun colors (even brighter IRL).
I stamped the different stars from Seeing Stars (on sale through May 15) with Graphite Brilliance ink on Papertrey's white paper. Then colored with Stampin' Up markers. I used a watercolor brush to even out the lighter colors, and to apply the turquoise. I also used the turquoise marker to add the dots among the stars. The sentiment (from Great Expectations) is layered on two rectangle nestability die cuts, spliced together to get the proper length. The photo corner punch is covered in Star Dust Stickles, as are the smallest stars.
