Whoo Graduated?

This card was from my niece who graduated from high school this year and her school colors are black and orange. Not my favorite color combination (unless its for Halloween). I didn't want to end up with a card that looked like it was made as a Halloween card and I had seen various punch art owls created and so I had to try it for myself. What could be more perfect for a graduation card than an owl! I didn't have anything to make a tassel with except ribbon so I just kept fraying one end until it was the length I needed and attached it to the orange "mortar board" with a black brad. Of course I had to add the googly eyes to make him even more whimsical. My niece loved it.
