You're a CUT Above the Rest!

Anyone else feeling like it's Monday?! Long weekends always throw me off! Anyways - today I'd like to share with you a card I made for a relative who gave me an unexpected graduation gift. Last weekend I graduated with two Associate's degrees (one in Art & one in Science - don't ask how - it has something to do with the way my credits worked out). And now I'm halfway to becoming a teacher! Super exciting. 

Here's the card... did I mention this particular relative is a hairdresser?

I used a combination of papers - Kraft, DCWV, My Mind's Eye, and Recollections. The card is 6x5.

The scissors are cut from the Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge and then distressed with Shabby Shutters and Pumice Stone Distress Ink. The scallop is distressed in Broken China Distress Ink. I also embossed the white circle with polka dots using my Cuttlebug. The Peachy face is a combination from sets PK-573 (eyes) and PK-943 (mouth). 

I cut the sentiment using my Cameo (used both my Cricut and Cameo on this card - yeah!) and used Latte crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl Jam, embellished with a few enamel dots from My Mind's Eye. I love these! The scallop is also embellished with White Opal Liquid Pearls.

Entering a few challenges!
