So Proud of You!

 It's always a special day when our children and grand children graduate from High School or College.  With the additional struggles and challenges brought on by Covid the last two years, I think they all should be especially commended for overcoming those barriers too.  

This weekend several of our family members gathered to honor one of my granddaughters, Skyla as she officially completed her home school studies, received her diploma, and turned the page to the next step in her life.

For her card I selected Polkadoodles Winnie, Graduation / You Passed from the Winnie Celebration 3 Series!  I also used digital papers from the Heaven Work N Place 10 Collection.

The image is printed on Neenah 110# cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  The Digital papers are backed with solid green that coordinates with the gown and then are layered on the 6" card base.  Both of the sentiments are from the Winnie Celebrations 3 Digital package.  For the finishing touch I added the green twine at the top and the cross charm along with a heartfelt personal note to her filled with love and best wishes for her future.

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
