This is so great! I've been stuck on this contest because I don't want to do the "traditional" graduation announcement but couldn't come up with an idea of how to do it differently. You figured out a way and it's awesome! Great job. Only suggestion would be to make Elizabeth's name more prominent...maybe swap font size with the date? She should be highlighted more than the date of the event since it's all about her accomplishment.

really cute! i think it could you some simplifying through. it's a bit busy right now. i would remove the top line "elizabeth is graduating in style" altogether. i would add that information to the bottom and minimize all the type at the bottom.
