Grad Follow your dreams

What an exciting yet scary time for the graduating class of 2013. We have two young ladies that we hope will break the mold and become successful by following their dreams and applying hard work to make those dreams a reality. I think a dash of "it's not all about me" and a sprinkle of manners will be just the ingredients that will set these two ahead of their classmates. My husband is a high school teacher and tonight he showed me two very well written letters from another pair of graduating seniors. What a mature act of kindness and gratitude they showed to their beloved physics teacher. Best of luck to all four of these students. 

My card today celebrates such accomplishments for these young adults. I would think this card would be better suited for a girl, per the husband boys hate-not just dislike but hate glitter which is what covers this frame by EK Success. I cut the inside label and its shadow from my Cricut which I inked the edges of the Kraft paper by Oriental Trading Co with ink by Ranger. The black Cardstock and card base are by Recollections. The ink I used is by Hero Arts with the grad cap stamp by Stampibilities and the sentiment I borrowed from a friend (I should remember it too-ugh). The brads for my card are by The Paper Studio, sentiment label by Spellbinders and very old gold paper by Creative Memories. 

Thanks for taking a look. Half way through the week. You can do it.

Challenges: Something with a B (brads) Black, white and one other color Black, white and one other color
