Great Job, Grad!

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you're enjoying the weekend so far. Today, I have a card for two challenges. The first is this weeks CAS-ual Friday challenge. 




We were to create a card for graduation.  You know, i'm still struggling with the whole CAS thing. I think this isn't EXACTLY CAS, but it's getting there...lol. My love of patterned paper foils me every time. :)

The second challenge is the Embellish Magazine Text Color Trends Challenge





We were to use "text" somehow in our creation. That sounded fun, plus I also totally dig this color scheme. It's right up my alley. So, here is my card:



I obviously decided to go the "ransom note" route with the cut out pieces of newspaper...lol. I also used the map printed in the background to signify the opportunities that lie in the "real world" once you graduate from University.


Well, that's it for me today. I've got laundry to do, so I must bid you all adieu!! Have a super rest of the day!
