Freebie Friday at Bugaboo!

TGIF!!  How true for me, it’s been  hot and humid, and very busy.  Summer’s in Quebec are always humid, and I hate the hot weather, give me the fall anytime.  Hey, I’d even be happy to see it snow!

Since it’s Friday, you know it means another gorgeous Freebie from Jodie (owner) of Bugaboo Stamps.  This week Jodie has the image “Ava Grad Diploma” for you, which coincides with school being finished in the next few weeks.

                   Ava Grad Diploma

After I colored the image with Copics, I used the Spellbinders oval and scalloped dies to cut and layer the image.  The designer paper is from the Hopscotch Paper Pad by Basic Grey.  The embossing is a folder by Couture called Diamond Trellis.  Border punch by Martha Stewart.  I got the sentiment from Create With TLC, she has many wonderful sentiments to chose from.  Ribbon and lace are by Offray.  I made the paper beads with leftovers from the designer papers.
