I chose to make a masculine graduation card and remembered this fabulous Cover A Card stamp.... CC152 Bookshelves .  I inked it up with Stazon Timber Brown on water color paper. The image was colored up with Rangers Distress Markers and a water pen.  I wrapped some black hemp twine and tied on a tag with Mini Square Tags Die Set DIE011-J and one of the sentiments from the  More Basic Greetings CL549 set. The corners are from the Instant Photo Frame DIE175-W.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!!
