A graduation challenge

Been over a month again. Just can't seem to find the time to post, or enter challenges. Hopefully life will slow down a bit now and I can get back to card making and posting.

Today I have the graduation Box card I made for my Grandaughter.


The school colors are red and white-and I just happened to have some red & white patterned papers - a 4x6 pad I purchased at a rummage sale, so I have no idea what the brand is-but it's very nice paper. (the pack had these designs in about 5 different colors!)

When folded flat the card is A2 size, and opens to this cute little box. The sentiment is from Art Impressions-Reach for the Stars. I used various dies, including Sweet & Sassy Congrats Grad (cap & scroll), MFT Lucky Stars and L'il Inkers Balloon and swirl dies. As well as a couple of stickers from my graduation embellishments stash:)

Comments are always welcome. Hope you have a great day!
