Unicorn Graduate

     Another short post due to shoulder problems which are interfering with both my crafting and my being able to sit at a keyboard to prepare posts

     I have two grandkids who are each graduating from high school this year.  The older one is an honor student and has already been accepted into the culinary school he wanted, on a full scholarship I might add!

    The other one is also an honor student and is graduating a year early, having done double classes all year in order to complete all her necessary units.  That was in addition to working a regular, part-time job and being on the cheer leading team at her high school.

     This is her graduation card.  She's totally crazy about unicorns so I used this image from Bugaboo Stamps, added the grad cap by printing another image which had a cap (you'll see it when I finish the card for my grandson), then cutting it out and adding it to the unicorn.

     Colored with ProMarkers and cut with QuicKutz dies.  I added micro-fine glitter from Sparkle n Sprinkle to the mane and tail.  The bow is one of my signature, hand-sewn bows, this time with a pearl.
