Graduation Hat

I just had to come back and do an edit. When I went over to enter my card at Incy Wincy, to my surprise I had won 1st Place for the last challenge. This really makes my day, I've been kind of  down because of missing so many challenges. I know you can all hear me clapping !! My sister asked for a special graduation card for a friend's son. I had been browsing at The Cutting Cafe, they have a lot of neat templates and digi stamps to go with them. This graduation hat template and the circle on top of the hat come straight to your computer ready to use. However, I had already found this tassel in the color I needed so I had to enlarge the hat so that it would be in perspective. On the inside I created the rectangle pocket so a gift card will slide inside. I created the sentiment in PrintMaster 11 so I would have the box around it. The sentiment is actually a stamp in the Stampin Up Summer Mini catalog, but I couldn't wait for my stamp to get here, so I'm giving credit for the use of the saying. I couldn't resit stamping all the stars and confetti to make the background paper because it is always a festive occasion when anyone graduates.
I did find 1 Challenge I can enter this into, I'm such a comment hog.
Supplies: Template from The Cutting Cafe, papers from my stash, tassel-Hobby Lobby, Sharpie Poster Paint Pen-Gold, Stamp: Inkadinkado-Birthday Fun, Ink: CTMH-Z2162 Honey, Stampin Up-1 1/2" circle punch.

Thanks for viewing,
