I made this one for my great-niece....Allison. She recently graduated from high school.
She kinda looks like the stamp set that I used from the now closed stamp company ....Hanna Stamps. I colored the image with color pencils and blended with a stump and OMS.
I cut out the mortar board by hand and added a brad wrapped with a small piece of metallic ribbon. The notebook paper is some DSP that I used a punch from SU! to create the edge. A MS punch was used for the zig zag border on the side.
The sentiment is a clear set that I can't remember the name of....sorry.
Of, course....I will put some money inside...... !!!! What teenage girl doesn't love money. Heck, what "older" girl doesn't love money...... (waving hands in the air)!!!!
Until later, $$$$$ girlies........Gotta split.......TFL!!!!
