Graduation Cards

I got my new Nesties Label 1 and Label 2 in the mail! So of course I had to find some time to play this weekend!! My sister is a high school math teacher and she has some students graduating this year and asked me to make some graduation cards. So, of course I HAD to run to the LSS and buy some stamps! LOL The school's colors are black and gray (very boring colors) so I am trying to make cards using those colors. On the inside of the cards I am using a saying that says "Life isn't about finding yourself, life is about creating yourself"

Card 1 Recipe:
Stamps: Hero Arts and Inky Antics
Ink: Colorbox
Paper: Black, Gray and white cardstock, The Glitter Mat Stack from DCWV
Accessories: Silver ribbon, Nesties and clear rhinestones

Card 2 Recipe:
Stamps: Grad cap- Printworks and Congrat Grad - Great Impressions
Accessories: Silver EP, Nesties and silver brads
