Graduation Card - My Craft Spot

I'm so excited to show you my first project as a design team member for My Craft Spot! This week's Monday Challenge is Congratulations

At the end of June, my middle guy will be graduating from grade 8. In Canada, this is quite a big deal as it means he has finished elementary school and will move on to secondary (high) school next year. I made this card to give him so he knows how very proud we are of him. 
This card is 8.5 x 4. Here's a close up to see the embossing a bit better:
Recipe:
Cuttlebug "Congratulations" folder - large white mat
George and Basic Shapes - mini mats and shadows
Cuttlebug "Seeing Spots" folder - mini white mats
Mickey Font - "YOU DID IT!!"
Locker Talk - graduation cap
Hello Kitty Greetings - diploma
Fiskars - border punch
My Craft Spot - baker's twine for sale here
Button and PopDots (under each of the little mats)

Please head over to My Craft Spot to see the rest of the wonderful design team inspiration - and to link your own Congratulations project!
