I made this card for my niece. She just graduated from the University of AL, explaining the colors. If you know anything about U of AL football and Paul 'Bear' Bryant, you will understand the houndstooth ribbon.
Quick and easy!!!
What do you think nwilliams6? (hmmm)
A big congrats to Linley!!!! So proud of you.

I'm afraid I don't anything about Alabama, except -well, you know. ;) But your graduation card is fabulous! Benzi, our youngest son just graduated with a Bachelors in Computer Science and he was hired for a great job in January!
Love the red! I need Blue and Gold, I think!:) Fab!

nwillliams6 loves this Benz! Great colors, perfect sentiment, super layout - and that ribbon is the best. ROLLLLLLLL TIDE!
You know, every Alabama graduate I ever hired (back when I hired people) was so smart and so refined. They knew how to operate in a corporate environment from day one (those Southern manners plus the polish from the University), and they were so much smarter than me. Good luck to Linley - she surely will do well.

going down south...so cool. When I get to the states some day I wanna go down south you guys are so neat...:0). This by the sounds of it as I dont know that university will definitely bring a big smile to the grad...Love the red and white and black and the simple pattern with your stars being cut out and left open or a hole how you say that...TFS..:0)
