Cardz TV 3D Challenge #1: Graduation

Hello everyone! Happy Friday....
I am so SUPER Excited to announce that I am one of the new designers for Cardz TV.
Mary and Cardz TV is the reason I started card making.  When I got my first Cricut (Baby Bug) for Christmas and a few Cartridges, I used Google to get some creative ideas on what people had made with these cartridges, and through this, met Mary at Cardz TV.
She changed my crafting life and made it look so simple and made me feel like I could do it to! And thus began my journey into this crafting world with my little Baby Bug.
Over 3 years later, and now my Baby Bug has turned into a Cricut Expression, an Expression 2 and my Shilhouette, I am a comfortable crafter, but still feel like I stalk her blog waiting for her newest creation to be live!  It's always a Happy Day when there is a new creation by Mary! 
Now onto our challenge.....

Our challenge this week is to create a 3D Graduation project!
For my sentiment I used my Cardz TV Stamp set "Congratulations" available at the Cardz TV Store.

For my 3D Graduation Project, I used a Treat Box SVG file by My Scrap Chick called Owl Graduation Trio.  Here is my finished project...

 love this sentiment....
yummy treats!

Please join us for this weeks challenge over at Cardz TV.  

Material Used:
*Cardz TV Stamps Congratulations
