I had fun with this one. Used quite a few different supplies:
**Flouish Grungeboard
**Ranger Copper paint dauber
**dictionary text
**Tim Holtz's Filmstrip ribbon
**copper photo holder w/copper mini brads (just love those!)
**Graduation hat die cut (unknown source)
**Harlequin stamp from Stampers Anonymous by Tim Holtz
**Graduation saying stamp from Stampin' Up!
**Distress ink---Tea Dye
**deckle edge scissors
**copper wire
**cream and black cs
**Black Stazon Inkpad
Love the distressed fell of this for a male college grad. Hope you enjoy it, too :)

What a great card! I love how the copper flourish pops off the card against the black and white. Love the print in the background as well. Hope your nephew LOVES it. I have a Tanner as well, except he's only 3, lol. Thank you for stopping by and joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week. I hope we get to see you again.

That filmstrip ribbon is the best embellie I have ever seen! Your card has fabulous dimension and texture, as always. You are in the zone...

This is fabulous! The copper flourish looks great and is perfect for a guy card.
