Happy Graduation Card

A card sure to make a graduate smile, especially if it contains some cash!  

This is one of my favorite patterned papers from the Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog, which happens to be retiring April 30th.  Grab a pack or two soon!  It's a print from Some Kinda Wonderful and it became a favorite when I saw the idea of adding fun faces on it.  Then I pictured those funny faces with graduation caps!
One thing led to another and this Grad card was born!



The faces are stamped directly on the patterned paper with the Sweet Birthday Stamp Set and a black CTMH stamp pad.
Stamp some graduation caps on scraps of white cardstock, cut them out, and attach them with some foam tape


Joining some fun design challenges:







Addition CTMH Supplies used:
Retired: Stuck on You Puffies (pink sparkly arrow)
Happy Graduation sentiment - C1649 Smarty Pants stamp set
