GQ Blog Hop Day 2- for the grads

It's that time of year for dads and grads.  This card is for my second cousin Ross who is graduating from high school.  Of course the last time I saw him he was a busy toddler at my wedding....now I feel old.  Well this card is a great way to show off the new in colors and how they work with last year's colors.  The base of the card is from pool party (a 2011-2013 color) and then the pennants are from the 2012-2014 colors.  Left to right they are midnight muse, primrose petal, summer starfruit, raspberry ripple and gumball green.  The congratulations is stamped in pool party and is from the set Curly Cute.  Of course the pennants are from Pennant Parade.  The inside is for holding money ( a graduate's favorite gift).  the owl was one I had left over from the treats I made for my son's last day of pre-school.  I used some retired DSP or the owl vest to make it look like a Hawaiian shirt.  The grad caps I found at Michael's.  I'm always looking in the sticker section for dimensional hats/props that will go with Mr. Owl.  Thanks so much for the great response to my slider/track card.  I will be working on a photo tutorial and post that after the hop.
Remember to keep visiting all the Glitter Queens now through Wednesday...and beyond.  Many are giving away candy.
