Donna's Card

On Friday my very good friend - Donna - defended her dissertation and officially became Dr. Donna. I am so proud of her! We have gone through so much together over the past three years. I absolutely couldn't miss her defense and wanted to take her an extra special card in honor of the occasion. I forgot to take a picture of it, so I had to ask her to take a picture and send it to me. I made those roses using a technique that a sideline taught me (Julia), but she got it from Julie Williams' blog. Aren't they gorgeous? I think it's much more beautiful in real life. The card is 5.5 x 5.5, an odd size, I know.

Barely banana cardstock (#102701 , $5.50)
