Freshly Made Sketches #80

Linda C has a great sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  Just wait until you see all of the creative takes the Design Team has taken with this one!  We adopted a new senior furbaby this weekend, so my crafting time was cut a little short. I went the CAS route with a card that will be perfect for upcoming graduations.
I added a little interest to the inside sentiment by adding a layer of outdoor denim.  I did at first stamp the Congratulations directly onto my Desert Sand just seemed a little too CAS for my liking.  I decided to add the layer and love the added punch it gives to the sentiment.  With papercrafting there are no mistakes, just the opportunity to add your own creative touch!
