For a Dear Graduate

My dear friend Gill, whom I have known since she was four years old, is graduating from college next month. I made this card for her with her school colors: black, red, and white. The layout is (almost) that of today’s sketch challenge on SCS (SC223). Hopefully I didn’t break too many rules by using a circle instead of a square.

The background was created by stamping one image multiple times (of course I used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig!). The jumbo grommet from the Occasions Mini catalog has little prongs in the back, which I first folded over with a bone folder before tying the ribbon through it.

Thanks for stopping by!
