Dream Big

It seems quite out of season but I felt like taking a break from Christmas stuff and decided to make a grad card.  I will need a few of these this year - for my daughter, some of her friends and I have a niece all graduating this year.  I used my Echo Park Everyday Eclectic collection, a Unity SMAK KOTM (track this, graph that) and my Cricut and some Divine Twine.


I really like this sketch from Unity this month and I am sure I will play along again.  This is also for the Friends with Flair.
