Congrats Grad...

Hello Everyone,

I am here today sharing my unique Graduation card for one of my Niece's.  As I was pondering on my design and looking through my digital images and stamps.  This stamp called 'Musical Walk' by Hero Arts caught my attention. It hit the right spot of what I wanted to show how I felt in shouting and blowing the celebration horns for her wonderful accomplishment.
I wanted to share with you the great tip and DYI I found on Pinterest on making the graduation hat. Here  at Just Julie B's blog...all I did different was score it some seam lines to give it more dimension. I handmade the tassel with Hemp/string and the help of using a fork...haaaa how about that for fun creativeness.

The supplies I used were Provocraft/Cuttlebug Letter die set for my Congrat and Grad. Spellbinders Nestabilities Stately Circles, Decorative Labels Eight, Back to Basics Tags, Fancy Framed Tags Two and Circles. My bling and pearls are by Recollections. I distressed the edge of my card with white embossing powder by Zing. My cardstock is by Bazill.
I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges where I am also a Follower.
