Say it in Lime and Orange

It has been so long since I have participated in challenges that I forgot how fun it is. I was so excited to see how this card turned out. I got back to checking the blog challenges and came up with this creation:

The color scheme came from Annabelle Stamps. I like this so well that I am going to make another one in our school colors (navy and gray) to give to a girl from our church. The base is white cardstock. The book was made using the cricut cartridge New Testament. I printed both layers on white cardstock at 1" and colored them with copics to match my color theme. The sentiment is printed on Word and cut out with a Fiskars scallop punch. The grad caps are clip art from Word that I cut out. The orange lines were originally white (as you can see on the sentiment), so I colored them. The image is from Stitchy Bear and is entitled Dream Girl. This digital stamp also comes with a sentiment, but I didn't use it. I colored it using PrismaColor Pencils. I love glitter so the dots in the center of the flowers are done using Glossy Accents and PK Glitz glitter. I also used stickles on the bug's wings. I used a foam square on the sentiment for dimension and added the ribbon. I am entering this card in the following challenges:
