Graduation Announcement

This is the graduation announcement that I made for my son.  I used the shaving cream techniques for the background.  The letters and numbers are embossed.  I thought they looked to plain and flat without the embossing.  The center image, from a retired set, is also embossed.  I love using the shaving cream technique because it makes the paper soft and it smells so good.
