Vintage Masculine Graduation Card & Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge #17

Our #17 challenge this week at Cardz 4 Guyz is Bingo for Guys! Just choose three elements in a row or diagonally, being sure not to use any of the other elements. I chose twine, image, button(s). High school graduations are coming up this month in the States, so I decided a masculine graduation card was in order (I made this one for a girl Sunday). I created a digital collage to use as my focal point. I used a free vintage image from Vintage Image, eliminating all the background and layering it over a vintage copy of Pomp and Circumstance sheet music.

Here's the Bingo board:
