Graduation Card


It has been quite a week. It was our 32nd anniversary, my son turned 26 yesterday and he graduated from college today! We are so proud of him.

He is our adventure child and we never know where he is going or what he will be doing. He is off to Idaho at the end of June. I will miss him terribly....

Below is the card I made for his special day.

Here is what I used:
Papers from my stash
Magnolia stamp Graduation Edwin
Embossing folder
Copic Markers
Congratulations sentiment

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
