Tomas the Graduation Cat (Dragonsmoore image)

Hello, everyone!  Before I share my card, I would like to welcome two lovely new followers - Shuly and Olenkaja - so happy to have you join me!

Today I am sharing a graduation card featuring the most adorable kitty called Tomas the Graduation Cat from Dragonsmoore: Spyder's Other Corner.  Spyder is one of my favourite designers - and I think you will see why!  I love this cute kitty!  He is so happy to be graduating - he makes me smile! Finding a graduation kitty image was not easy, and I was so pleased that Spyder came up with this sweet one!  

I used the school colours from the nearby town, where my nieces and nephew attend, which are maroon and white.

I paper-pieced Tomas's grad gown and cap and added coordinating strips at an angle. The DP is from Colorbox Midnight Garden. The sentiment is a freebie digi from Desert Diva (thank you, Hannelie), and I added three silver metallic grad caps to finish it off.
