Graduation Owl

This card is dedicated to my clever sister who just graduated from Harvard on Friday.  She's now an official non-medical Doctor.  Hooray. :)
I used THIS gorgeous owl stamp from My Cute Stamps, and added a graduation cap made from some foam packaging I hoarded a while ago.  The lined paper is from THIS cute pad by Jenni Bowlin and the patterned paper is from the October Afternoon 'Fly a Kite' pad.  The alphas are also October Afternoon (HERE).  And the rest of the sentiment is from THIS HA set.  I use this sentiment stamp a lot, although I don't think I've ever used the full sentiment.  I love masking my sentiments to create new ones :)
Have a happy holiday Monday everyone.  I'm enjoying mine a LOT.

Now that's a clever sister! But your sister also has a super clever, crafty sister too - you!
Loving this card, Lucy - those papers are scrummy and the graduation cap is just the sweetest finishing touch!
Enjoy your bank holiday (and half term - tee hee!)
