You Did It Grad! ~ CCMC357

Good Thursday Morning!  It's Create With Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge time!  This week we've got a neat sketch for you!

I needed yet another graduation card, so that's were I went with the sketch.  I made the main square a shaker and filled it with red glimmer paper confetti stars, clear seed beads and silver sequins.  The graduation cap is just a 1 1/4" square punch and punched hexagon.  The tassel is from the balloon framelits.....isn't it perfect?!?!  I also added a red glimmer paper banner cut from the balloon framelits as well.  
The black striped paper is from the new Neutrals paper's got such wonderful patterns and neutral colors.....including gold and silver!

The sentiment is from {Bravo}. 
The card also measures 5"x 5", so I made an envelope to go with it.  I love the coordinating envelope and they are so easy to make with the envelope punch board.  I also added a coordinating insert for the envelope that I cut with the envelope insert die. 
Make sure you hop on over to Create With Connie and Mary and check out the other awesome designers!
