QKR Stampede Challenge #191 - Graduation

It's time for our weekly challenge at QKR Stampede and this week is "Graduation".   I chose image #17713 Graduating Owl.  He is colored with copics, glossy accents to make his eyes pop, and cut out with Lawn Fawn large stitched square die.  Layout is for Stella Says Sketch #409 over at Catch The Bug Challenge Blog.  DP is from The Paper Studio, red cs from Craft Smith pinks and reds 12x12 pad, and black cs from my stash.  Six gold stars popped up with foam tape and a diploma brad all from my stash.

Stop by QKR Stampede's challenge blog to see the AWESOME cards my DT sisters have made and join our fabulous challenge!  The prize for winning is 2 digital images of your choice, but if you use a QKR image you will win 3 digital images of your choice!  Hope to see you there!
