Mojo Monday...Happy Graduation

Morning blog friends! I received some very happy mail from Windy Robinson a few weeks ago that contained some rich, classy papers from Graphic 45's Communique collection. I thought they would be a great match with this week's Mojo Monday, so I've combined the two like so:

I think I have about 1 graduation card in my stash of about 500 cards so I went with that theme today. I sponged all of the edges for more enhancement of the colors and added some seam binding behind the 3 banners to tie in the red from the background paper. I was going to leave just the flower there, but at the last minute decided to add the tulle accents, for a kind of spray effect. The sentiment is courtesy of Verve's Dare to Be set. As another last minute addition, I included some Zva Creative crystal flourishes.

Here's the Mojo Monday sketch:

Here's a glance at the stamp set I used:
