Bluejay Graduation Card

I was asked to make a graduation card for a girl at work. She said the school colors were blue and gold. The mascot was a Bluejay. So this is what I came up with. The bird acually isn't a Bluejay, but I couldn't find a Bluejay cut for the Cricut. I googled Bluejay and tried to color my bird as close to a Bluejay as well as I could.

For the inside I made a border cut following the directions from Lori at Scrappin' my Stress Away. To make my border stick out more, I choose to mount it on a blue rectangle. Thank you Lori for the great directions for this border.

For this card I used the following cartridges with my gypsy:

50 States: Bird
Wild Card: Congratulations
Printing 101: Bluejay (the word)
Plantin School Book: Hats Off (part of inside border)
A Childs Year: Grad cap
George and Basic Shapes: Rectangles (part of inside border)
