Challenge Me Monday #112

Hello everyone and welcome to another Challenge Me Monday at FCCB!  This week we want to see your graduation projects.  This one hit home a bit for me.  My baby sister will be graduating from high school next year.  There is a fifteen year age difference between us.  I have watched her grow up and sometimes it's hard to believe she's not that little kid anymore.  
On to my card, the base of the card was cut at 5"x6.5.  The light purple mat was cut at 4.5"x6".  The original paper was plain.  I heat embossed stamps from My Creative Time's latest release to make my own background paper.  The tag is also from MCT's latest release and the hat is from Locker Talk.

Pin It

Items Used:
Locker Talk Cricut Cartridge
My Creative Time: Here's Lookin' At You & Tag Dies
Clear Embossing Powder
Heat Gun
Embossing Distress Ink

Don't forget to stop by the FCCB blog and check out the rest of the DT projects!  I promise you won't be disappointed!
