Congratulations at Cardz 4 Guyz

It's time for our new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz, and this week our theme is Congratulations.

I've decided to make a graduation card. Back in my days of learning, only University graduates had graduation ceremonies, but nowadays they seem to be held for every academic step - my four year old granddaughter has just had one, complete with mortar board and scroll, because she is leaving nursery for primary school! So there are far more opportunities to send graduation cards.

I've used decoupage and a sentiment from the CD The Best of La Pashe 2014 along with some woodgrain effect backing paper and black card, to represent an old fashioned school blackboard, a "school ruler" cut from a sheet of Fancy Pants paper and a scroll made by tightly wrapping a piece of parchment around a pencil.

 I am sharing this with
Allsorts Challenge - New Beginnings as every graduation marks moving on to a new stage in life
Crafting Musketeers - Back to school
Make My Monday - Back to school
