Graduation Owl

Hey everyone....It is Sonya here today from Sonya's Paper Trail and I thought some of you might be needing some inspiration to make graduation cards this time of year.  Our babysitter (probably our last one, based on how quickly my son is growing up) is graduating from high school this year and I wanted to make her a special card in her school colors.  

This is what I came up with:

I love this super smart owl cut from the Silhouette Online Store.  I made one small change to it.  Instead of cutting out tiny black spots for his eyes, I simply used a black gemstone.  So very much easier and it adds just a tiny twinkle to the owl's eyes.

The patterned paper is by MME and is from the "Remarkable" stack.  That paper pad is just full of fabulous designs.  I know it will be put to good use!  The various cardstocks I used are by SU.

Are you making graduation cards this year?  I love making them, such a wonderful milestone to celebrate!

Have a fantastic day!
