Congratulations Graduate!



With a load of graduations happening in May I wanted to do something without a mortarboard. What's better than a pretty medallion and simple banner! The sketch is so simply elegant that I could not resist. I used Spellbinders Parisian Accents medallion die and cut it in half. The bright colors make it little whimsical, fresh and bright.

Brilliant card. I too like to stay away from the obvious and this is marvellous. Every card the graduate will receive will have a mortar board on it. Love the CAS look.
