Muse #16



This week Laurie Willison was the Muse at the Muse Challenge Blog with this fabulous teacher card!







I like the school theme and the colours but we are not in the market for teacher cards anymore so I decided to make a graduation card as my son is graduating from high school in June!  I used my new Darice Grad Cap embossing folder for this one.




All supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.

Cardstock:  White, True Black, Pure Poppy
Stamps: It's Official, Make a Wish, Tag Its #4
Ink:   Pure Poppy (PTI) Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
Dies: Star punch (Fiskars)

Perfect twist on the teacher card - love the order form instead of a library card & congrats to your son!

I totally forgot about that EF. Super card. I love how you combined all those different elements, and your focal point is just adorable. Get a diploma, or you will be waitressing at the diner for the rest of your life!
