This is another CASE of a beautiful Mother's Day card by Angela. It isn't quite as CAS as maybe fits the CAS specs, but imagine the Wisteria as white and maybe it stretches into the category? Anyway, I had a request for a graduation card in lavender and pink and used Angela's awesome sketch to put a card together. I stamped my Whisper White square with paisley in pink and Wisteria flowers. I sponged the edges with the pink. The sentiment is stamped over this in Elegant Eggplant. I cut my frame and then used a stylus to add scored framing for the image panel. I layered this over a white scallop border. I popped my mortar board in the corner instead of a flower. I punched two of my squares and glued them together. I punched a hole in the center and ran my ribbon through then pulled the ribbon to make the tassel. I glued two circles over the back ribbon piece after adding my brad. Instead of a white bg, I used the lavender and embossed with polka dots. I added my ribbon pieces and accented with rhinestones. This whole panel is popped over the pink base. Hope my customer and her granddaughter like the card.

Oh what a fab grad card! You know what I really love about it? You don't have anything on here purchased especially for a grad card and yet it's totally a graduation card. I will be borrowing your "cap" idea for sure!
