I have a Graduation card to share today.  I think every neighbor, niece, and family friend's child graduated this year.     I am using Verve's Love Notes, Starstruck, Words of Wisdom, With Love, and Happy Graduation plain jane stamp sets.  I combined these stamps with Verve's Scalloped Trim Trio, Jotted Heart, and Starry dies.


I created a monochromatic card to use for a guys graduation.  I distressed the edges and added some corrugated cardboard for texture and to man it up a bit more since I did use polka dots and hounds tooth prints. I am using this week's MojoMonday sketch.


As always thanks so much for stopping by!  Jessica is next on the hop!
