I volunteered to make cards for our local School Board Appreciation Week. It's great to work for a school board where you can know some of it's members. I got to know one member when our DD belonged to 4-H and another I've know since he was in elementary school in my DD's class. I had an idea in mind of what I wanted to make
( a CASE of the Graduation cards I've made)
but without the cap and diploma. Then I couldn't decide what to use for the embellishment. I knew I wanted to stick with the brush gold CS (SU!) but in the end I went with So Saffron and Black.
I used several challenges to get my Mojo going and ended up with the following card.
We are planning on giving them gift cards.
Below are the challenges I am entering this card in-
