I used the sketch from Aly's Sunday challenge for this card, but i wanted it to be unique. This is what i came up with. The paper i bought years ago from Michaels and the tassle i've had in my stash forever too. I used my Spellbinders dies for the sentiment and image. I also used 2 Cuttlebug embossing folders for my Mortar Board.
