High School Graduation card

I have a grandson that is graduating from high school in May.  His school colors are black and silver.  I made it following a sketch this week at RAQs Challenge this week on the Cricut message board.  I am pretty happy with how it turned out, even though it has some bling on it I still think it works for a boy.
The congratulations grad and the cap are stickers I bought at Michael's.  I was pretty excited when I saw them as I knew they were the perfect colors for his card.  The bottom paper is from a school stack I got at Big Lots last year.  Sometimes you can find some pretty cool things at Big Lots. I used a ruler I found on clearance to cut the wavy edge, well actually it is torn using the ruler.  I Cuttlebugged the silver piece of paper with the "traffic jam" folder.  The stripe across the bottom is a black piece of ribbon with a silver piece of ribbon on top of it.
Here is a close up of the cap, it is satin with some bling on it.
Can you believe it is already going to be graduation time, the year seems to be flying by.
Thanks for stopping by.  Leave me a comment so that I know you were here.
