Bloggers Challenge 154

This is graduation season, so this week's Bloggers Challenge is appropriately a graduation card. I love blue for graduation cards. All the paper, the stamp, and the brad and tassel are from Club Scrap. The gold frame is a small cuttlebug die and embossing folder. I started by stamping the top layer with a stamp full of happy words and phrases. I layered it on the navy cardstock with the embossed sentiment and then on the matching card base. I stamped the mortar board and cut it out. Then I attached the brad and the tassel. The frame was die cut from gold metallic paper and dry embossed. I attached the frame and used pop dots to attach the mortar board.
