A "Clever" Card

Today I have a take on an untraditional graduation card.  It doesn't have a diploma or a cap with tassel in sight!  But it is for a really smart girl, and I wanted  to do something a little different to make my congratulatory wishes stand out!


Here's my recipe:  Patterned paper-scraps from my stash, cardstock-Bazzill Basics, border punch-EK Success, glasses cut with Cricut using Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge, pearls-Melissa Frances, stamp-Peachy Keen Stamps Wide Eyed Kids Assortment, markers-Stampin' Up!, stardust pen-Sakura, flowers, Prima, brads-Paper Studio, ribbon-Stampin' Up!, chalk ink-Studio G. I made the card to fit an envelope in my stash--it is 4x9 inches.

Hope you like this card! I'm entering it in the following challenges:
Frosted Designs Card Sketch Challenge #19--sketch
