Quick graduation card

My friend, Carol, asked if I would make a grad card for her to give to her son. I don't have any traditional graduation stamps, so I really wasn't sure what I was going to do! His school colors are blue and white. I wasn't feeling any of the sentiments I had. I started looking through my rub-ons, and I found "Follow your heart". That was when the whole card came together in my head. I colored the chipboard heart with Rose Red craft ink. I made a Whisper White card base and mounted a piece of Brilliant Blue behind it. I stamped Tres Chic onto Brilliant Blue cardstock with Brilliant Blue ink and attached it to the card base after tying Whisper White grosgrain around it. I think it turned out pretty well, and she loved it!
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Tres Chic; Paper: Whisper White, Brilliant Blue; Ink: Rose Red craft, Brilliant Blue; Accessories: On Board chipboard, ticket corner punch, Eastern Eclectic rub-ons, Whisper White narrow grosgrain ribbon
