Patriot Graduation

This card was made for my daughter who just graduated from High School. Her school colors are red, white and blue; and the mascot is this Patriot. Her school was built in 1976. I found this picture of the mascot on the school website and save it as a picture. Then I printed it several times and paper pieced to create layers. There are single, double and triple layers. No stamping on the outside & I don't even know the artist that created the Patriot. On the inside, I used my studio g grad stamps. It says- 'congrats, grad. We are proud of you.' The corners are ticket cut and in the botton right corner there is a punched out small star.

How totally AWESOME! Love how you did the flag--it looks really great! Congratulations to your daughter! I graduated from HS the year her school was built! We had all sorts of RWB stuff (even though those weren't our colors), since it was the Bicentennial.
