A Graduation Card for Jacquie!

Yesterday we went to a graduation party for my husband's cousin Jacquie.  She just graduated Saturday from Iowa State.  I wanted to incorporate the school colors of Red and Gold.
I also used two of my favorite papers that are retiring - Typeset DSP and Fancy Foil Designer Vellum.  I layered them onto the Very Vanilla and Real Red cardstock.  I cut the numbers using the Big Shot and the Large Numbers Framelits.  The graduation cap I cut by hand and attached with a dimensional.  The candy dots were on the clearance rack last week but are gone now - sorry!

She loved the card and I'm so happy she did!  We are proud of Jacquie and we're anxious for her to start her new job in Iowa.

I missed last week's challenge over at SU Only challenges (congrats theme!) but this week's challenge is using our favorite background papers.  If I had to pick one, it'd be the Typeset DSP.  I even ordered an extra pack just because I love it!

Hope you head on over to SU-Only Challenges and see all of the other great creations.

Have a great Tuesday!
