Con "grad" ulations

I wanted to make a card for my niece's graduation, and since her school colors were red and she wore a bright blue dress under her graduation gown I figured this was a perfect chance to use these colors! 
I'm so proud of all her accomplishments... and barely 17 years old too!!! 
I can't wait to send her this little beauty!

And a close up where you can see all the dots I added to her dress, and on the gear wheels too!  

On the bottom I added a little sentiment using my dymo label writer
Finally I added a strip of ribbon, twine, and a little flower with a jewel brad in the middle to round out this fun card! 
The digital image is from the very talented Krista Smith at Saturated Canary... check out her shop here!
Her digi's are truly amazing!
