 Hello everyone.
Today I have a card for a special someone that graduated from Arizona State University last Thursday.
This is for a young man that has spend a lot of time at my house through Jr. High School until now. He is a friend of my boy's. And worked his was into our hearts. So this called for a special card!

I won a challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow a few weeks ago and the prizes was from Sassy Cheryl's.
I just have to say that I got myself a couple of very cute images! And this one today is called FRANTIC GRADUATE. And he was so fun to color!!
He just happens to also look so much like the young man that received this card. HAHAHAHA..

Coloring Medium: Copic Markers, distressed inks around paper edges.
Paper: The Paper Company, Cosmo Cricket, Bazzill cardstocks
Accessories: ribbon, pearls, black rhinestones, glitter stars, AS and Arizona State University both hand cute from Graduation announment.
Tools: Sewing machine
I have used the school colors for my card.

I have also made seasoned pretzels to go along with the card. (A request from the graduate) He just happens to love them!! I made a flap top with the word CONGRATS on the top and popped a bow on it to match the card just for fun.
Challenges to enter my card:

DRS Designs - Graduation cards

Come and Get it Challenges: Let's Hear It For the Boys

On the inside I have used my computer to do the wording and used 2 pop-up by Jolee's.
On the top side of the card I have cut out his announcement and added it. To make this a keepsake type card. 
I will sign the card and add a gift card to it for him.

Have you entered my BLOG CANDY yet??

 Thanks for stopping by today!! 
 Wishing you love, happiness and inky fingers.
