Design Team Monday! Happy Memorial Day!

Welcome to another Design Team Monday and Happy Memorial Day! This week's challenge is a card sketch challenge. I hope you will join us for a chance to win some free files from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs! 



This is a graduation card I made for my daughter. She is graduating Kindergarten soon. They don't actually have a ceremony at her school but I still wanted to give her a little something to show her how proud we are of her. I used white for the gown because that's the color I wore when I graduated Kindergarten lol.

Be sure to also stop over at the Little Scraps of Heaven Design Team blog to see what the rest of the design team came up!
