Happy Graduation!

I've got a couple nieces graduating this weekend, and I've seen some cute owl grad cards. In fact, I had to buy the owl punch for this reason!

I love to custom the colors for the graduating school colors. I used my Basic Black marker to dye the White Baker's Twine for a tassel. And some Crystal Effects on the nose and feet.

Lorri Heiling's card was my main inspiration.

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, En Francais; Paper: Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Basic Black, Whisper White; Ink: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Whisper White craft, Basic Black marker; Accessories: Owl punch, Curly Label punch, Scallop Circle punch, White Baker's Twine, Crystal Effects, Real Red taffeta ribbon, Pumpkin Pie taffeta ribbon, Basic Black satin ribbon, Square Lattice embossing folder, Big Shot.

Thanks for stopping by!
