"Follow Your Dreams" Grad Card!

My niece recently graduated from high school!  Congrats Liz!!!  This is the card I made for her.  The background is made up of layered flowers which I cut using my Cricut and Sure Cuts A Lot (SVG by Images by Heather M) and then sprayed with glimmer mist.  I plan to do another project using this layering technique and will show it off soon!  Also, I used SCAL to print the digital stamp I used (created by Elegant Word Art by Bethany).  I have started a tutorial on how to do this, and I will share it with you sometime this week!  

I also cut two different label SVGs.  The intricate label SVG (behind the sentiment) is by Shery K Designs and the other label/frame SVG is by Bird's Cards.

I am entering this card into the following challenges/link-ups:
Fun with Color Challenge at Whimsical Wednesday
Sentimental Sunday Challenge - Sparkly or Summer
Paper Dolls Link-up #3 - PD Color Theme

I hope you are having a wonderful week so far!  Please let me know what you think - I love your comments!
