It's Graduation Time!

Since I have several graduates I'm thinking about for June, I wanted to make their cards special!
This card was inspired by Wendy Hawkinson. Her design was square and I made mine the typical 4.25x5.5 and used a different embellishment. I used Basic Grey cardstock for the base, then Basic Black embossed on the Big Shot with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder (EF), the Cherry Cobbler cardstock was embossed with the Stripes EF, plus Grey/White DSP. The congratulations is from the Curly Cute stamp set, stamped in Basic Black and sponged with Cherry Cobbler. The embellishment is 1/8" black taffeta ribbon and a Cherry Cobbler button. I threaded the ribbon through the button eyes and it worked very nicely.
