Your Wings Exist

 Today's card is one I did up for my niece's high school graduation. The image is from Unity's Your Wings Exist set and I thought it and the sentiment were perfect for a young lady about to embark on her life's journey.  I love this image and plan to use it more.  The papers are from First Edition's Isabella 6" x 6" pad and the buttons are from a package of Prima wood buttons and those little things are just the cutest!  The swirls are a Marianne Createable and I've used Copis to colour the image.
