Eureka DT card for May 30 - # 195, Anything goes!

The challenge this week at the Eureka Stamps blog is a favorite - anything goes - Eureka Stamps.  We have a fairly large extended family, and each year there are several graduations.  I try to use school colors, if possible, for the card.  That used to be much easier!  With the trend of do-it-yourself announcements, the colors are not so obvious, and even a Google search may not work.  However, I think blue and white is right for the latest graduation!  I used a blue oval for backing of the Eureka digi graduation hat (Digi 18901), then promptly covered it with the circle die cuts for the numbers!  I decided to use my neglected Congratulations folder instead of a sentiment stamp - though I had selected a cool vertical congratulations Eureka Digi -in a bold font.  I will use it another time.  These numbers are by Cuttlebug, from the Olivia alpha set - one of my earliest die purchases.  The strip of ribbon is from a July 4 collection that was buried in my drawer- the hint of fireworks is suitable for a graduation celebration also!
