Masculine Graduation card

  I made this graduation card for my nephew completely from Echo Park, MME, and card stock scraps!  I have been trying to create this card for about two weeks...the papers and stamp set were in a pile on my floor.  This morning I decided to either create a card or clean up the pile.  I am happy that it finally came together.

Details:  The bird is cut @ 2.25" with shadow from "3 Birds on Parade."  The green notebook paper is MME "School Daze" 6x6.  The solid teal is Echo Park "Winter Park" and the tassel, beak, feet, banner, and yellow check are all Echo Park "For the Record."  The sentiment is from the retired My Pink Stamper "School Days" stamp set.

  My motivation came from this Retro Sketches Challenge by Danielle Lounds:

Happy Sunday!
