Optometry Graduation Card

Have you ever lost something to eventually find it in the place you first looked...?

Yep, it happened to me tonight.  I couldn't find my camera to take a photo of tonight's project, and I went crazy trying to locate it.  My hubby searched all the nooks and crannies of the car.  We looked in all my son's known hiding places.  But -- surprise! --  it was in the front pocket of my purse all along.

Tonight's project -- before The Great Camera Search -- was a graduation card for one of our Bible study friends.  He graduated from optometry school this weekend, so I made the sentiment an "eye chart" of sorts and included a pair of glasses.  Here's the result:

Cartridges Used:
Create a Critter
Wrap It Up

It's hard to see, but the teal stripe behind the eye chart is embossed with my newest Cuttlebug embossing folder, Distressed Stripes.  And I colored in the shades by hand -- really making a case for me to get the Nifty Fifties cartridge with the cute glasses cut.  (It's my first choice on my Provocraft/Michaels rebate promotion.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed.)

I had fun making something a little out of the ordinary.  I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
