Oh, Man! This Rocked!

Most of the time, I have no problem giving away a card I have made. Every once in a while, I like one so much that I kinda want to hang on to it. This was one of those cards I had trouble letting go of....but I had to leave for the party 5 minutes after I finished it! (I would have liked to get a better pic but I was out of time).

I started with THIS sketch from Club Anya. I "frankensteined" this girl by using the head from Camille and the body of Odette so she would look most like my graduate. Now...I need a graduation cap. I started by punching a 1 1/4" square of grey cardstock. I trimmed it to make it more diamond shaped. In the photo below, I placed a punched pink 1 1/4" square under it to show how I trimmed. I sponged a little black in the center bottom. I also punched a little more than 1/2 of a 1 1/4" circle. I used the 3/4" punch across the bottom to make the two arches. I added a little white highlight on each piece and a tassel of embroidery thread to finish. Fab!
