You Did It!...

So today's Scrappy Saturday Free Your Creativity challenge had me thinking about the future. It's cold here in NYC and I am pining for the summer. When I think of summer, I think of things like weddings and graduation, and so I thought I would make a congratulations card for a graduate. I love the idea of moving ahead with something big and wonderful.

  1. Make card from cardstock.
  2. Trim dark green cardstock and adhere.
  3. Broder punch light green cardstock, trim, and adhere.

This is SO fun!!! I'd love to be able to see grass for a change, instead of the 3 feet of snow that covers the lawn!
