Cheery Lynn Designs - For the Graduate




Morning fellow crafters and bloggers! :) I hope the weather is lovely where you are - its been absolutely gorgeous here for the last week, so lets see how long it lasts!! lol :)

My card today is for our new challenge over at the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge where our theme this week is 'For The Grad', and as always we have a fabby prize of a $20 gift voucher to spend in the online store so well worth joining in!

I hand-stitched Prima Printery papers onto layered Ivory and Black bazzil card and inked the edges.  The image is from SquiggleFly and called Noah Graduates .  On the top and bottom panel I used the Mini Flourish Scroll die and added an acorn and leaves.  The middle panel has the really elegant Mini Flourish Band and I made the Diploma and Grad hat on my digi-cutter and attached gold embroidery thread for the tassle.

All dies used on this project are:
