Bloggers Challenge 46 -- Graduation Cards

Another simple card from me! This is a heartfelt one and it is going to be for my 8 year old son who so struggles with school because he is dyslexic and we just found out. He has worked so incredibly hard this year and I am sooooooooooo incredibly proud of him! It continues to be hard but I can only pray and work hard with him in hopes that he can finally find a place were he can be proud of himself too. So this is my Blogger's Challenge Card for week 45.





Stamp Sets Used: So Cool and the retired little layers
Papers used: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Real Red and Whisper White card stocks
Ink: Night of Navy, Real Red and Bashful Blue on the embossing folder for a tone on tone embossed effect.
Other: Cuttlebug embossing folder, Nestabilities circle dies, gel pen, brayer, brad
