Morning hens!  This is a little card I made for my niece
who graduated last year.  These little images are from the Smarty Pants set over at Paper Smooches.  I colored them with my Copics  and paper pieced the professors shirt. Of course, you can't have glasses without some Glossy Accents right? Love it!  I matted the DP with some SU Basic Black CS and stitched around the edges.  I  attached them to the DP with a few dimensionals and tied on this cute striped ribbon.  I stamped the diamond pattern on the bottom with one of the patterns from the Debonair stamp set and placed little gold beads in the center of each diamond.  Last but not least, I rounded the corners with my Corner Chomper.  Love that thing!

I also made this cute little box that looks like a mortarboard. Bet you'll never guess how I made it?  Hmmmmm???  How'd you know?  Yup, my Silhouette Cameo!!  Then I just attached some yellow grosgrain ribbon to the bottom of the round cup and threaded it through the top.  

I stuffed it with some shredded paper and placed her earrings and necklace inside. Love it!
