Cyberspace Graduate

This card was made for my sister-in-law...she has finally joined us in Cyberspace, the online world of computer networks...great news.  She's attempted new technology a couple of different times but with little success; but she recently dived into's a start.  

The background is from CTMH Paper Fundamental Basic Assortment "Black" and Gold heat embossed on edges.  Used Flaxen also from Paper Fundamentals for the three borders, around focal point and sentiments and Gold heat embossed around all edges.

Owl and Assessories:  Owl stamped on Flaxen with VersaMark and heat embossed with gold powder and popped up with 3-D Foam Tape.  Graduation Hat and Glasses were die-cuts from Cricut Design Space (See Below) CTMH Black Glitter Paper, hat adhered with 3D Foam Tape.  The Branches were stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with Black powder and placed with 3D Thin Foam Tape.

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #143 is Daisy White, Black and Gold and/or Flaxen, so I thought I would use these colors for her card, and follow a Sketch from Sunday Stamps, a new challenge my neighbor introduced me to.  

Other Challenges Entered:  Although this is not a square card, I believe it's a good interpretation to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday2 Challenge #55 and The Outlawz Greeting Challenge - Anything Goes and Heart2Heart May 18 Extra Extra Read All About It.  

Please stop by and look at the DT's inpirations for Sunday Stamps, Color Dare and Sweet Sketch Wednesday, The Outlawz, and Heart2Heart and all the crafters that have entries...still time to join any of these challenges.  

A suitable substitution and/or addition to this combo would be our exclusive color Flaxen. It's the best shade of gold we have in inks and cardstock!
