A Gorjuss Graduation!

We had a friend who recently graduated from college and she was also promoted to 2nd. Lt. in the U.S. Army! I incorporated the two major accomplishments into a card for her! I altered this Gorjuss Girl to hold a handmade diploma instead of her letter, gave her a graduation cap and she was all ready to go! Our friend's college colors were red and green, hence the colors of the card! Then on the inside of the card I incorporated the U.S. Army seal (that I found by searching the internet and printed it on cardstock)!
Recipe:
Stamps: Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Girl from Collection 1; Stampendous Graduation Words
Inks: Momento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Papers: SU cardstock and dp, DCWV Congratulations dp
Tools: WOW - another card with no tools (besides my scissors)
Embellishments:
roses, Primas, other flowers from HL, ribbon, tulle, floss and brad from my stash.
I will be leaving for vacation on Saturday! Woo-Hoo! I will schedule some posts for while I am gone to keep you inspired! :)
Thanks for stopping by!
