Graduation Card

Well, I'm back...finally! Feels like I have been gone for a long time! If you read one of my earlier posts, you know that my monitor died and that I could not use my Design Studio. (I was SO lost without it!) Anyway, I wasn't sure what I was going to do...well, you won't believe this but it just started working again. WOO HOO! I am not questioning what happened, just happy that it's back.

We have a graduation next month for our niece. So, I also thought this would be perfect for two challenges...Die Cuttin' Diva's (sketch) and Celebrate the Occasion (Graduation).

Cardstock: White, Black, Yellow and Two Patterned Papers
Cricut Cartridge Accent Essentials Accent 50, page 81 (Base)
