It's June and that means "Graduation Time!"

Good morning! Today over at Meljen's Designs is my day to add a little Inspiration to your papercrafting world so I'd like to share with you a Graduation card I made. This year my littlest grandson, Zach, is graduating from Senior Kindergarten and boy is he ever excited about it! So to help hime celebrate this milestone I thought a cute little gift card work do just the trick.

I decided on this cute Meljen's digital image "Professor Owl".  I coloured him with Copics and added lots of distressing by inking all of the edges. I cut both ends of this flap card with a circle Spellbinder Die to make them rounded. I also cut out the image with an oval Spellbinder Die. I folder embossed the entire background of the card with a Swiss Dot folder. The DP is a little bit I leftover, I think it is by MME. The sentiment is computer generated and then cut out with a Creative Memories circle punch.

Inside I created a little pocket where I'll be inserting a coupon for "Ice Cream with Grandma & Grandpa"! Zach will love it! So there you have it! If you are looking for some super cute "School Related" images I really encourage you to check out all of the great images Melissa has over at Meljen's Designs...she even has a lot of cute freebies!
Blessings on your day.
