Trendy Bakers Twine~Monochromatic Grad Card

Hello all!  Today is my day to share a project for the Trendy Twine blog.  The Trendy Twine colors of this month are Midnight and Stormy, which work perfectly with all the graduations happening AND are on sale this month!
For the card that I am sharing today, I started with patterned papers from DCWV's Gilded Grey stack and matted and layered those onto a card base.  With the background paper, I thought a "thread nest" would look nice on the card, so I used Stormy Trendy Twine to create that and popped up a sentiment strip over the top of it. The sentiment was from the APB You've Got Mail stamp set and was stamped in black ink.  The die cut grad hat was from the Silhouette Store file number 58783 (graduation banner grad caps) and was cut 3" wide.  The final embellishment was a trio of gold star sequins from the Delightful Sequins mix.  On a side note, the Merry Sequins mix has silver stars that I could have also used, but decided the pop of gold was just right for this card.  The layout of this card was inspired by the February 2020 SheetLoad of Cards sketch.

Here's what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
