Graduation Card

I made this card for my nephew's graduation.  His school colors are gold and black.  This is the closest gold color paper I had in my paper stash and it is from Hobby Lobby.  The designer paper is also from Hobby Lobby...it is big pack of different black and white patterns.

I started off with my House Mouse graduation stamp inked in black.  Prisma colored pencils and mineral spirits were used to color the cute little guy.  The congratulation stamp is from Stampin' Up! All Year Cheer.  The SU! ticket punch was used on the corners and then gold brads were added.  The cuttlebug star dies and the cuttlebug were used to cut the stars out.

I was really pleased with the outcome of this card.  I hope my nephew likes it as much as I do.  The children and I are headed out to see his graduation on Thursday.  From what I've been told, this should be a "different" graduation.  They live in a small town in Georgia and it will be held outside.  I hear some folks bang on pots and pans...hmmmm.

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!
