~For the Graduate~

I am officially old.  This past week we received a graduation announcement for our great-niece.  How the heck did that happen?!

Her school colors are patriotic blue/red.  Since the graduation is at the end of May, these colors are perfect.  Americana at it’s finest.


I made a tiny tassel with embroidery floss.  Since I don’t have the same size pearls in all three colors, I colored a couple white pearls with copics.

Ok, so my initial thought was to make the cap look like it’s being thrown (as often happens at the end of the ceremony).  I ran with the stars hoping that would read that way.  What do you think?

I used:

Stamp Simply Clear Stamps – Graduation Sentiments

Authentique – 6 x 6 – Frontier

Spectrum Noir Ultrasmooth Premium White Cardstock

Stamp Simply Steel Dies – Fishtail Sentiment Banners
Cheery Lynn Designs – Dies – Graduation set

Spellbinders Nestabilities – Stars

Kaisercraft Pearls – Red

Melissa Frances – Pearls – white **

1/4″ ScorTape
Thermoweb 3D 1/4″ foam squares

Memento Danube Blue Dye Ink
** Copics (B69, R39, RV69)
Red embroidery floss


Thanks for stopping by!
