I love the idea of using this sentiment from the Word Play stamp set and putting it together with a graduation cap from Congrats, Graduate. As I was playing, I realized I could stamp it so that it looked like one consecutive stamp (the cap is actually separate from the sentiment!) I stamped it that way and then punched the image out and sponged around it with Concord Crush.
These cards are actually for 3 guys, but their school colors are purple and gold, so I don't think they'll mind. Only a few more days left until Concord Crush retires!!!!
