Owl Grad- Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #18

It's Sunday and you know what that means...another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge from Karen! Here is her sketch this week. Last night before I went to bed, I knew I had to make a graduation card today and was hopping that I could use Karen's sketch, and I did!

Here is what I made! I knew I wanted to have an owl on the graduation card, so I decided to make a punch art one, I think it came out cute! He even has his graduation cap on and his diploma in wing!

The owl is made using More Mustard, Sahara Sand and Whisper White card stock. I sponged around him a bit. The branch he is sitting on I cut out and then die cut some Little Leaves using the Big Shot to add to it. I used the stamp set Great Grads with Versa Mark Ink on the Bashful Blue background to make my own DSP.

The tassel on the cap is even in the appropriate colors for the grad who is receiving this card! I made the tassel by first dying some ribbon a darker green and then frayed it and mixed it with some white frayed ribbon. I hope she likes it!

Thanks for looking!

You are a paper peircing Queen this week! I think my favorite part of this card is the attention to detail. I love that you match the school colors with the tassel and also the rolled diploma is a perfect touch.
