CASology Challenge #150


Hi everyone,
A really quick post to share a card I created for this week's challenge at CASology for the theme 'Graduation'. 




The file for the graduates was cut with my Silhouette, then I inked the background with SSS Sea Glass ink, and stamped the sentiment with Versamark and Gold embossing powder. I added some small stars from Mama Elephant's Confetti die and the stitched border is from MFT's Blueprints 13. 

That's it for me today...I hope you are all having a great day ~ Thanks so much for stopping by ~

Is is the best graduation card I've ever seen, Barb! Happiness bursting off the page! When DS2 graduated, they weren't allowed to throw their boards for elf'n'safety reasons!
