Graduation Card - Oh Happy Day

Hi Everyone!
Hope you all had a GREAT day! I wanted to share a graduation card I made for my cousin. I  LOVE using the "Oh Happy day" for grad cards, because it sure is one. I started with the Oh Happy Day frame and layered it on top of a scallop circle and then using my gypsy I cut a circle from the middle of the scallop to make another frame. The center image of the girl is from Beyond Birthdays  - I know, I know, it's an oldie!!! Added a some brads, grad cap and diploma in hand and voila one Grad Card for the new Doctor in the family :) 
Oh Happy Day Frame is cut from Wild Card Cartridge (I should have added some white gel pen to the letters :( oh well next time.

Paper - Echo Park, Recollections
Glitter
Brads
