Graduate...



I like how this turned out! I handcut the graduation cap and thought about making a tassle with thread, but that idea soon disappeared! I found the cutest "GRAD" paper clip at our local dollar store, so I had to use that. I cut the 2008 with the Cuttlebug...and made the "congratulations" with little individual stamps. I even used my handmade stamp-a-ma-jig to line them up. I think I'm getting the hang of it. The reflective red strip is me trying to recycle...I think it's metallic tissue paper. Our colors are red and black and the gal that got this one said, "It was my favorite card...I'm not even making it up!" I had to laugh at that!

This is totally fabulous Denise - I love the rich burgundy color with the black, just gorgeous and that paper clip is really cool! Our $$ store has nothing like that - lucky you! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex
