GRADUATION DAY third post today

This is my third post today because I will be away and I wanted to be sure I didn't forget to post the recent cards.
Also because my camera will be taking tons of grad
pictures and I didn't want to lose any.
The theme for my granddaughters grad is Hollywood, glamour and glitz or as the invitation says, "Lights-Camera-Life". So I strayed a little from the tradional Grad cap and gown.
The white background is that gorgeous corrugated card stock from (where else?) the DS.
The grad dress was stamped with silver ink and embossed with the heat gun. ( I have much to learn about stamping).
Cap and scroll and dress were popped up with glue dots and the tassel made from yarn. Diamonds along the hem were in the stash. I have no idea where they come from as I just pick up things along the way. I think it was on a visit to B.C..
Since the theme was bling, I added a bright removable flower, again from to give it some pop.
Thanks to Curt O'Brien from Curt's World for the idea for the gown. I know it is supposed to be for a wedding gown but it sure lent itself to this grad card.
Have a Blessed day.
