Brilliant Grad!!

Hello all! 
Hope you have had  a great weekend!!
Mine has been busy and very productive!! 
Here is what I have been upto!

I made this card for the Friday Mashup challenge and the Dynamic Duos challenge.
My inspiration for this card came from a vector image of a graduation cap that I found on google images. 

The background stamp, I'm sure you will all recognise by now...Starburst from Hero Arts!
The light bulb and sentiment are from  the Technique Tuesday 'Bright Idea' stamp set...another favourite!
Inks are memento Dandelion and Versafine Onyx Black.
The sentiment is heat embossed with American Crafts embossing powder.

To make the graduation cap, I used my square nestabilities dies and my circle punch. I cut and trimmed till I got the right effect. The tassels are made with Baker's Twine from the Twinery.

I thinks it looks really cool...don't you?!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Good night!
