Graduation Card

Pat lives about four houses away from our house, she is a very sweet lady and has become a great friend to me! She asked me if I could make a card for her son, who was receiving his Masters degree today at Ely Cathedral. I knew that this meant a lot to her. I did not know where to start as I don't have any Graduation Stamp sets, I did have one, when it retired I sold it, as I did not like it very much! so I remembered the very talented Stamper Mel at Melstampz, way back in February she had posted this gorgeous card. So, I spent a whole day looking for it on her blog.... duh, and found it, now I did not have the card stock nor did I have the background stamp. Well, I came up with this one, stamp used is Stampin'up, from the set Papa's pocket (retired) and the card used is from a UK paper store in St. Neot's! I made the envelope in the shape of a graduation cap, but I could not take a picture as my battery died on me! but I like the way it turned out and Pat liked it too!
Here it is, tell me if you like it!
