Tracey-ButtonA

The sentiment stamp is from Creative Vision Stamps. Ribbon is from JoAnn's, That was a wonderful find for 50 cents yard and I love the butterflies and the flowers. Added some large yellow buttons. Punches Martha Stewarts was for the background paper, Marvy Uchida scalloped square for the sentiment , EK punch was used for the words good luck. I used one of the Nestabilities for AJ and Audrey. One of my Sizzix dies for the Mortarbord and tassel.
