Graduation 2011

It’s another CAS-ual Fridays Challenge. This time it’s all about Graduation. When I saw this challenge, I knew immediately what I was going to do. Of course, I had to live up to my procrastinator status and post it at the last minute. They say the first step is admitting you have a problem. Fine…I have a problem. I am a procrastinator. Now what? LOL! Enough of that…back to the card. I totally stole, lifted, cased the idea from Kim Hughes. She has a fantastic card (Congrats 2011 Card) in the May/June 2011 issue of the Paper Crafts magazine, page 40.




This card is just a mere example of how great her card is and I only wish I could replicate its awesomeness exactly, but I did what I could. Excuse the graininess of the photo - the color red and my camera didn't get along very well this go round.  I used Microsoft Word to create the tag and the “2011” on the side. Any who, I seem to be awfully chatty today. What’s up with that? Ok…I’m stopping now, right now. Please let me know what you think about the card. Ok, for real this time. Bye for now!
