For my daughter's 8th grade promotion, I made her the card below. The owl is part of the paper's graphics. The owl is associated with wisdom and knowledge which is very appropriate for the occasion. I used nesties to create a book where I hand wrote the sentiment. Furthermore, from seeing Becca's graceful use of layering, I rested the book on a medallion and then a mat. The roses were made with one of the rolled roses from Spellbinders.
