Card making for 8th grade niece

Promotion or Graduation from 8th grade?

No matter how it is declared, my niece has reached a milestone in the American educational systems of finishing elementary level and is deemed ready for high school. Yea!!

About making the card--I made lemonade out of lemons! The oval floral garland embossing folder was received in this month's issue of a U.K.-based crafting magazine and even with thin paper, I wasn't getting much embossing. So, I thought there's more than one typical way to use this--I'll try a colored pencil texture rubbing and see what kind of results take place.

Here's the card cover:

(sorry, I forgot to crop the photo after I scanned)

I used 4 colors for texture rubbing: orange, pink, purple, and green. I'm hoping my soon-to-be high school niece will like the card!
