Graduation Announcements

So this weekend I was playing around with this step card I purchased from the Silhouette store.  My idea was to create a congratulations you graduated card but my husband loved it so much that after I had it half way done we started playing around with our son's mock up ideas for his graduation announcement.  Needless to say there will be changes such as adding in the piece for the time, location, etc.  And unfortunately our local scrapbook store has closed shop so I'm not sure I'll be able to get my hands on any more of the NHS Eagle paper.......but I heard there's another location close by to check out so we'll see.
In the meantime, here's where I've got.  The Eagle on the outside of the card is from the Cricut Summer Celebrations.  Instead of using it as a print 'n cut I just place it where I needed to print.  When it comes time to create the "real" card I might use the print 'n cut but I'm not sure.  The eagle on the inside is an SVG that I collected from one of the groups that I belong to.....sorry but I don't remember which one. 
The school's colors are black, gold and maroon so I've incorporated all of those in to this card.  Fortunately I have several sheets of this graduation cap paper in my stash because the ones currently on the market just don't do as much justice for this card.
Once I work the final kinks out with my son I'll share the final version.  But until then this is our announcement in the rough......
