Beautiful You Graduation Card

I like to personalize my graduation cards with school colors. 

This is one is for a special person graduating with top honors and a first place award from Villanova with school colors of Navy and this light blue which I think is Tempting Turquoise (so sad this color retires May 31 but fabulous new ones are coming).

I used the set Beautiful You with the dancing girl and placed a mortar board cap ( 1/2" square ) on her head.

The little scroll is about 3/4" x 2" rolled and tied up with silver and white twine.

I colored her dress with the Stampin Write Markers in Black and Tempting Turquoise.

You will see a silver gem ... this is the first place award that was a large round silver medal!

I made the tassel from white twine colored with the Turquoise reinker.  I unraveled the twine so I have just a single strand.  Created a loop, tied up the loop. 

The inside is simple from the same set. 

Card Dimensions:
White 3 3/4 x 5
Black 3 7/8 x 5 1/8
Turquoise 4 x 5 1/2

I've used this set a lot.  Click here to see the set used as designed with watercolor pencils

Happy stamping, happy graduation and congratulations to all graduates!!
