It's Graduation Time

My sweet friend Leah is among the talented stampers I get to be with monthly.  This month she was working on graduation cards.  At first I thought she was making them to sell but as it turned out she needed a bunch.  I believe she had over 10 going when I looked over.  WOW!!  

She was kind enough to let me share her wonderful card with you.  They are basically simple yet some elements do require a bit of time.  The word piece not only required cutting the piece but also clipping the corners.  And also the layer behind it!  

Then there's the scalloped piece which needed to be punched out along with the white circle. 

The graduation cap is from some sticker set she had gotten at the local stamping store.  She just set them in place on the circle.  

She added a piece of black decorative paper and a ribbon to cover the edge of the black paper.  I don't remember what school she said these colors were for but I'm sure for those of you not in our area school colors don't mean a thing to you since each school in any state has it's own colors!  I just love the concept of using stickers like that on cards!  Her cards were adorable and all ready to go for the upcoming open houses she will be attending.  I hope they are not all in one day!!

Thank you Leah for sharing your card with everyone!
And thank you everyone for stopping by today,
