TO THE GRADUATE {Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge}

TO THE GRADUATE

A lovely challenge is currently running over at Fresh Brewed Designs which is BACK TO SCHOOL. I have used this fun image called CAP AND GROWN, which you can purchase here. Also visit Fresh Brewed Designs' Facebook Page to join in all the fun and surprises, here.

The gown has been paper pieced and the edges faux stitched and chalked.  The folded embellishments have been created with a square punches. The design papers and brads are from my stash. The sentiment is from HANNELIE {DESERT DIVA}.  

I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:
