Congratulations - a graduation card

Happy Saturday!  It's been a busy one full of laundry, planting and weeding.  Ick, weeding!
So, after all of that was done I rewarded myself with a little crafting time.  You know I deserved it :)

I created a graduation card for CASE Study Challenge #141.  Maile's cards are just so beautiful AND so much fun to CASE!  Take a look at this weeks creation from Maile.

Here is my take.

I needed a masculine graduation card. hearts on my card!  Banners were my choice.  I used my double ended banner dies, but trimmed them down to work on this card.  That patterned paper is from the Dewey Decimal pad from Lawn Fawn.  Just perfect for a graduation card, I think.

Thanks so much for taking a look today!  I hope you'll leave a comment :o)

Supplies list:
Card stock: pool party, crumb cake (SU), white (PTI)
Ink: early espresso (SU)
Stamps: sentimental swirls (Avery Elle)
Patterned paper: petite paper pack Dewey Decimal Collection (Lawn Fawn)
Other: linen thread (SU), mini key (7Gypsies), woodgrain impression plate, double ended banner die (PTI), foam tape (3M), scor-tape (Sookwang), glue dots (Zots)
