new school colors for graduation

This is the first graduating class of our recently combined high school and the school colors are teal, black, and silver.  It took me a while to get something worked up (considering graduation was last week, lol) BUT I did come up with something I'm happy with just in time for the reception of my daughter's best friend.  I was also inspired by this week's sketch at Mojo Monday.

details:  I made my own background paper for the main portion of this card.  To do that, I stamped using the BACK side of the cross stitched border stamp from the January '14 stamp of the month, Cross Stitch Wishes, in Lagoon.  I then stamped the stitched looking lines in black using a stamp from the same set and I used CTMH's metallic silver marker for the thin solid lines.  I must say, using the Versamat and our ruler to line up and space everything.  I embellished with the teal, black, and silver shimmer trims and aqua dots and the silver glitter gems from the Frosted card workshop on the go in the last catalog.  I punched a 2" scalloped circle with a punch and used black ink and the Congrats Graduate stamp set for the focal point.  I also used the metallic silver marker again to hand-draw a faux stitched border around the scallop and inked the edges in black.

Happy crafting and best wishes to all the new grads out there!  Annette
