Graduation Dreams

Thank you to all the veterans who have served in our country's Armed Forces.
Thank you to those who still serve today.
Graduation is in the air! This week's CAS-ual Friday Challenge is to make a graduation card. I've finished all my graduation cards that I need to send, so this one is an extra. Usually when I make a graduation card, I use the school's colors in the design. Today I decided on black, white and blue. One of the high schools near us has blue for one of its colors, so I thought that this would be appropriate for that. I also think that it could be just a good masculine graduation card for any school! My card wasn't coming together until I found the dp scrap in my pile. That added enough "extra" to pull the card together. My mojo was not working for me yesterday, so I'm hoping it will come back soon:) This card took me MUCH longer than it should have!!
