Hi Everyone!

Today I wanted to share the Graduation Card I made for my niece who just Graduated from High School. She wants to be an interior designer & is very excited to attend VA TECH in August!!! She is an amazing artist in mixed media, you name it, she can do it!!!

My nephew (her brother) just graduated from TECH (but his card wasn't as with a Bachelors Degree in Computer Science AND I'm very happy to say, that he just got a VERY GOOD job with a software company!!! We are all soo proud of him!!! I may have said this before, but we are big VA TECH fans!!! My hubby went there & my youngest son is hoping to go as well, but he has 2 more years to go at FUMA.

Now, on to my card, it also serves as a gift card/$ holder. I'm entering it for some Challenges as well (they are listed below). I think it turned out really cute, please let me know what you think!

Stamped & Heat Embossed all the Sentiments to make my custom background paper.
The black embossed part is a pocket that we put her Graduation $ in
