Vintage Graduation Card and a few challenges

Graduation time in the States this month and I'm in need of a few cards. I found this lovely vintage freebie image from Vintage Image It's by turn of the century advertising artist Archie Gunn and dates from 1907. I removed its background and created a digital collage with the sheet music from Pomp and Circumstance. This is probably a bit bright for a graduation card, but I confess to being rather pleased with how it turned out.

I'm linking up with the following challenges:

Paula Holifield Crafts —Flower Power
Brown Sugar Challenge #92—Patterned Paper
Crafty Hazelnut's May Patterned Paper Challenge

Paper—cardstock, Jennifer Ellory Damask Rose, Raspberry Road Designs Love Lives Here
Topper—my own digital collage with image from Vintage Image
Dies—Die-namics Ovals
Embellishments—ribbon, button, twine, pearls
