  • And its strange how soon you forget
    That you’re like stars
    They only show up when it’s dark
    Cause they don’t know their worth
    And I think you need to stop following misery’s lead
    Shine away shine away shine away
    Isn’t it time you got over how fragile you are
    We’re all waiting
    Waiting on your supernova
    Cause that’s who you are
    And you’ve only begun to shine

Hi Suzy, I love today's card with the graduating Tilda. In case I've never "pleaded" before, please do not stop giving us such detailed descriptions of how and WHY you do different things on different cards. It is so helpful, and I always feel like I have been to college after reading your blog. When you say, "Trust me, you must try this technique." I do, and I will!! Thank you for being so generous with your knowledge. Linda S. in NE

Gorgeous...what a wonderful image and graduation card! I usually end up keeping my Tilda cards simple, so I guess I never thought of being intimidated by them!!


wow!!!! This is absolutely gorgeous! A technique I have to try!!!

Christina C.

Wow, Suzy, that card is absolutely GORGEOUS!! Sooo elegant!! Hugs, Christina

Elaine Allen

This is a beautiful card and thanks for sharing that the layering is not always necessary...sometimes less is more as shown with this card, very very nice!!


love this. Im going to have to try floating acetate too now. Your example is inspiring!


Wow Suzy, The gold and shimmering base of colors made this card a stunning one. The acetate added some classy touch on the card. What an elegant card you made here!

Sharon Caudle

Oh my gosh, Suzy, this is gorgeous!! Love the idea of the floating acetate sentiment and will be trying that! Great idea! All the gold embossing is perfect for a graduation card. Beautiful card!!

Barb Hardeman

What a beautiful card, Suzy. Love the coloring and highlighting Tilda with yellow is so cool. She really shines. Nice technique on the sentiment.


Suzy, This is so pretty!! I just love your beautiful coloring! I love the way you did the diploma and books just beautiful!! Hugs, Laurel


Stunning card! I love how you subtly colored the Magnolia image and embossed the diploma and books. I love using this technique too. It's trying to hide the adhesive on acetate is the tough part sometimes. I've got to use my curved rectangle nesties more often. It is a very elegant grad card!


Just beautiful, Suzy...I have never tried that technique but it is most attractive...such an elegant card...Hugs..Jacque
