Graduation Thank You Cards

My oldest son graduated from High School in May.  He had so many thank you cards
to send out that I didn't get to make all of them.  I did, however,  make about a dozen of
this card for him to send out.
Graduation Edwin from Magnolia stamps was just perfect for the cards.  I used the tassel cut from
the Paper Doll Dress Up Cart and wrapped some embroidery floss around it. 
I made cute little bow ties for Edwin since my son wanted to "stand out" at graduation and look a little different than everyone else so he wore a orange and blue plaid bow tie.  I guess he didn't think the Honor's tassel,  National Honor Society shawl and his Student of the Quarter medalion made him look unique enough.

Here is a pic of my handsome son holding his Diploma and his plaque for being 4th in  his graduating class!!
