Graduation Card

My SIL is graduating high school.  I don't have many graduation cuts on my Cricut... just a hat, a diploma, and a dressed up Hello Kitty.  Well,  she has been over Hello Kitty for years (how can someone be over my bestest kitty cat friend?!) so I decided I'd try something different.  I know I've seen some simple single layer cards that look like graduation gowns so I just did a lot of trial and error to get it to look right.  Here's what I came up with:

(click for larger image)
I started off with the single layer card without the hat and diploma, but I wanted to enter it into a few more challenges so I created the hat with tassel and the diploma with the ribbon.  Love it when one card can enter numerous challenges!

I'm entering these in:
Scrapalicious graduation theme challenge
Fantabulous Cricut try this angle challenge (needs to have a triangle and a rectangle [shirt is made from 2 triangles and the card is a rectangle, also the hat is a rectangle with ends folded in so it "pops" off the card])
Kaboodle Doodles tic tac toe (ribbon, punch or die, brad)
I Did It Creations anything goes challenge
And of course, The Outlawz CAS Sunday challenge which is make a 1 layer card

Till next time!

Love that card, the hat was just the perfect touch! Can I use that for a card I need to make for a girlfriend's daughter? Great job, thanks!
