Congrats Grad


When I first saw the current CASE this Sketch, I immediately thought of this graduation cap.  Unfortunately, it was too big to line it up horizontally, so I took a little liberty with the sketch and used nine of the same images, but on an angle.  I wish I had stamped the cap in a pure orange instead of coral, but am still happy with the end result.  I always take sketches pretty literally so I'm pleased with my non-literal interpretation!


And here's quote #3 for the week.  Hope your week is moving along well!
