Woodware - graduation

I have been a bit quiet on the blogging front of late. I don't know if it's my age but this whole menopause thing has really taken it's toll!! By the time I get home from work all I want to do is have dinner and veg in front of the telly. Energy was something I used to have plenty of but now I could really do with an afternoon nap just to get through the rest of the day!! The say age doesn't come itself ....... I think what I need now is retirement!!! Bring it on, I can't wait!!
Anyway enough moaning. I am last up this week for Woodware's graduation theme. I don't own any graduation stamps supplied by Woodware so I have had to improvise a bit.

I used a Stampendous stamp "Scrolled Medallion" to create the background. I stamped it repeatedly in gold and embossed with gold powder onto antique gold card stock. The words are another Stampendous stamp "Every Day Dreams". As I didn't have an appropriate graduation sentiment, I thought this would do nicely.

 A bit of organza ribbon separates the two panels.
I used an old Quickutz die of the mortar board and diploma scroll to make my topper to go onto a square stamped and embossed with a fine script (also Stampendous).

A very simple card, but as they say often less is more. If you are looking for ideas for graduation cards then check out the Woodware blog this week. All of the samples from our DT are very differenttand sure to give you some inspiration.
Three days off work .....yippee.
Have a good weekend everyone.
