SSS209: Looking fine in that cap and gown

Hello everyone!  I am excited to share my card with you today.  I have two special students graduating and am taking them to lunch on Thursday, after their presentations.  I need to make two cards, but was only able to make one today--but it is SPARKLY and I LOVE how it came out (though it did take several tries to perfect it).  Now I'm undecided whether I should make a completely different card for the other one or just a different type dress. LOL!  I'm using the Sweet Spot SSS209 challenge sketch for this card today.

I can't remember the name of the patterened paper I used but as you can see there's quite a few sparkly papers.  Dies are from Stampin Up (dress), Paper Trey (Banners and edging) and Memory Box (ovals).  The sentiment is Stampin Up.  I put two Swarovski Crystals on each shoulder and as you can see from the photo, there's some bling on this card!  I want to save it for myself. LOL.
Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you continue having a lovely weekend...Margaret
