Graduating...

Only another week, and my gorgeous daughter will get to put on a gown and mortar board ( strangest name for a hat!) and walk up to receive her degree. I even have bought a new dress for the occasion (don't do clothes shopping!) When I knew that she had got her marks, I made a card for her, but as she was at the Edinburgh Festival, she only recently received it. I used photoshop and a mortar board pic I found on the net to amalgamate the 2 pics. I used Grungeboard Mixed minis for the letters and a saying inside the card I found in a box, sent to me by a Canadian colleague.
I distress inked the letters with Old Paper , and layered everything up. I was rather chuffed with it, and I know she liked it. Have an Arty day!
