Graduation Time

My husband and I are creatures of habit.  Every Sunday after church we head to the same restaurant and usually have the same waitress.  Shannon is a lovely young woman who is about to graduate from LaSalle University.  Of course, that calls for a graduation card and here it is:

LaSalle's colors are dark blue and gold so I went with a Night of Navy card base and gold foil numbers. If you look closely, you can see that I embossed the front of the card with a retired embossing folder.   I die cut the numbers using the Large Numbers Framelets.  

Isn't the graduation hat on the zero cute?  I sketched it on the back of the gold foil paper and cut it out.  I made the tassel with embroidery thread.  It's held in place with a gold brad.  The tassel is light blue because Shannon is an education major.

I hope Shannon likes her card!  What do you think?  Let me know in the comments below.

Happy stampin',
