2012 High School Graduation card

Today I share with you a simple graduation card that I made for my niece who graduated high school this month.  I'm not really happy with the way this card turned out...I think it could have used some layers but oh well.  I guess beings that I had deal with 2 sick kids over the last 3 weeks and myself being sick too has taken a toll on my creativity.

I decided to make an easel card for this because I just love being able to have them displayed, plus I haven't ventured into any other type of display card.
I only used Wrap it Up Cricut cartridge to create this card.  I covered the wording in Martha Stewart glitter and outlined the cap with Stickles.  I used a white gel pen on the diploma.  Lastly I added some 2012 ribbon and star brads.

I gave this card along with the layout I made:
You can view all the details HERE!!!  I created this envelop for the back of the layout for my neice to place some memories of high school and her graduation that she doesn't neccessarilly want to display or loose.
Since I have already posted my graduation layout and entered it previous challenges I can only enter my graduation card in the following challenges:
