Here is a card I made for my older one's graduation. The tassle was made with red embroidery yarn and I am honest when I say that it took me almost an hour to make. The hat has been stamped and fussy cut and the brad was coloured with a Sharpie since it was baby pink in it's original avataar.
The hat was coloured with water colour pencils and a water brush. The clear stamp is from Kaiser Kraft and the paper is from my stash while the sentiment was part of the set with the hat. I rolled up a small piece of paper and tied a wee bit of embroidery yarn to make the diploma and used glossy accents on the heart and the flowers.
I will enter this card in the following challenges:
