Wishing You Success Beyond Your Wildest Expectations...

A sweet friend asked for a graduation card for one of her former students; I used Mercy's Sketch (HERE) for the layout and some MME designer paper (I'm working really hard to use the paper I have - yeah me!!).

I really liked this layout; I sponged everything with PTI's Dark Chocolate and hand cut the Hawaiian Shores border for the focal panel, 1st time I've hand cut a layered piece like this; thought it turned out pretty good for a girl that can't draw a straight line, glue anything straight, etc.  :D

The two sentiments on the outside are from PTI's Scattered Showers; the inside is from Verve Visual's Great Expectations (wishing you success beyond your wildest expectations).  The papers are PTI's Hibiscus Burst and Hawaiian Shores; such a fun, cheery combo celebrating a very fun and cheery event!

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas!  Thanks for popping in; I love when you visit!  Hugs, ~M.
