Congratulations MA!

To gain a Masters degree takes a great deal of hard work; to do so whilst holding down a more than full time job as a busy parish priest, serving the local community on more than one school governing body (and in a myriad of other ways) is a huge achievement. It was a pleasure to make a card to celebrate this as the man concerned is, quite simply, thoroughly likeable and great to work with.

This was also one of those rare cards which turned out exactly as I envisaged it! I "drew" the mortar board in the Ecal software then cut it & the letters out on my Sizzix Eclips then stamped the "congratulations" in Versafine Onyx Black, going over the letters with Wink of Stella to add a tiny bit of glitz which I couldn't manage to capture in either photograph. The tassels were simply made from black twine.

I'm entering this into the 200th challenge over at Less is More.
