Go Confidently in the Direction of Your Dreams

It's graduation season...and with the age of our boys...there are lots of friends graduating from high school...so last weekend I went to work on making the last of the graduation cards for the year.  This card was inspired by Ardyth's gorgeous layout below. It look everything in me not to make a floral card (because I love floral cards and bold pops of pink!).  I was inspired by the layout and the tilted panels. I did try my hand at inking the edges...but honestly distress inks and me are not really friends!  So that panel was thrown in the garbage!  So here's the end result!  Thanks for all the gorgeous inspiration Ardyth!  Enter this over at Muse and Addicted to CAS.

I think we're done with graduations for this year too! Next year maybe only one...I can't think that far ahead, lol!! This is a great graduation card, Lynn! That die, and the stars and arrow along with the most perfect sentiment, make a wonderful card. Bet this one is saved forever! I know I would! xo Bev

I love this tilted celebration card honoring this milestone in a young person's life, Lynn, and love that it was inspired by Ardyth! (I'm with you on the DIs! Until you said this, I felt like I was the only one in our community who can't seem to get the hang of them after years of trying! Thank you for sharing!!) Hugs, Darnell
