Graduation



Less is More is asking for
ONE LAYER CARD
time once more. 
The challenge this week is to
 USE A FLOURISH
Now you know I am not a stamper, but that doesn't stop me entering into the spirit of Less is More.  I looked at all my files for "flourishes" but none of them did anything for me, then I got to thinking what would I use it for, so went through my PS brushes and came up with Graduation by Obsidian Dawn.
Of course that's what I'll do it for, so tried a few brushes, but they left me cold too, then I added the tassel and voila a card was born LOL.  I thought the tassel looked like a flourish I had tried earlier, so added it and kept everything in black, printed it out and then added Glamour Dust to give it a shine.  Hope it meets the "flourish" LOL.  The font I used is Smitten Kitten.  It sounds such a quick card and would have been if I had thought it through first, as it was I was 2 hours or maybe more searching trying and deleting before I came up with it, Oh!well.


I shall be entering the following challenges
