Class of 2011

 Happy Saturday!
What a glorious day we are having here in Texas! WOW! I love this weather!

So, I have about 3 graduation cards to make this year and I guess now is as good a time as any to get started huh?

I made this card to play along in a challenge too.  It's over at Celebrate the Occasion....check it out! They give away prizes and who doesn't love prizes?
 I used my Wild Card Cricut Cartridge to cut out all the details for this card.  The "class of" is cut @ 8" and the "2011" is cut @ 2 1/2".
The hat and tassel is cut out @ 4".  I made the gathered ribbon by running two gathering stitches down the middle of the ribbon and then gathering it up.  Since my purple thread wasn't quite as dark as my ribbon I added the white stars to cover it.
That's one card down...now to get busy on the next one!  It will be a marathon to get all the cards I need to complete done by the month's end! Onward and upward!

Thanks for dropping by to see me today! Please join me again tomorrow for a Mama's Day card! {I know, me posting two days in a row} Until then, have a lovely day! HUGS! :)

Pin It!
