MOJO139 - Graduation Season

Hi Everyone!

My nephew graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder a few weeks ago with an engineering degree. Congratulations Ted!

The school's colors are silver and gold, to go along with the mining in Colorado, along with black. I used an older Mojo Monday sketch challenge as inspiration for this card.

I used an old retired set called Tassel Time for this card. I embossed the images in gold and mounted them on Night & Day DSP. For silver, I embossed a piece of aluminum foil.

Stamps: Tassel Time; Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Night & Day DSP; Ink: Versamark; Accessories: Gold embossing powder, Aluminum foil, Button, Crochet thread, Topnote die, Backgrounds I texturz plate, Big Shot.

Thanks for stopping by!

I LOVE this card! I love that you used tin foil for the folder, and the grad set looks amazing with that as a background.
