Graduation card

Side view

card opened out

It has been a miserable day here today, the rain has not stopped all day. I cheered up when I found out I was in the top three in the Die Cut Dreams challenge. I have added the button to my side bar.

My card today is for my niece who will be graduating in a couple of weeks time. I have used the colours of her gown and hood.

I have used a Forever Friends stamp nad adapted it by making a morter board cap. I have made this new fold again, I'm enjoying making these at the moment. I also used Martha Stewart punch, Nesties, Woodware star punches and the rest from my stash.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Forever friends - Kinetic card
