Die Cuttin Divas Sketch Challenge

This week at Die Cuttin Divas we had a sketch challenge. I decided to use this opportunity to finally make a graduation card for my cousin. I've been putting it off mostly because I don't have any cartridges that have grad cuts. So I decided to make my own. Below is the sketch from DCD
and here is what I decided to make

The cap is actually a stretched diamond and square welded together. Then I cut the diamond again to layer the cap. I just rolled a piece of white paper and tied it for the diploma. I had to actually look at my own graduation pictures to remember how to construct a tassel! I just used some orange ribbon and bunched it together with a strand of gold wired Christmas ribbon! I knew it would come in handy some day! Now hopefully I got his school colors right!
