Graduation Time

Happy 1st day of May my friends. Who's ready for summer? I know I am.

I just received an invitation to a graduation from our friend's son. Wish we could be there for that but since we can't I made him a very special Graduation Card/gift holder.

I scrap lifted some of the card from my friend Kim. She gave me the cute owl idea in one of our classes together. But since I did not have a grad cap to cut from my cricut carts, I used a stamp and fussy cut around it to use for my owl. I also got to use my new Jaded Blossoms Flag Dies.

I went online to look up the school colors because I love to make my cards as personal as I can. Don't you just love google? Any who, here's my card/gift holder.

I am entering this card into the following challenges, cause WHOOOO doesn't love a challenge. hehehe
