For the Graduate

In my quest to get graduation cards completed, I am hitting up all the sketch challenge sites.  Fusion is having a great Let Us Remember Challenge.  While I would  have loved to combined the theme and sketch for the challenge.....I seriously need way more graduation cards!  So, I have went with just the sketch-

I was excited to find this gem of an embossing folder in my stash. Chances are it has resided there for some time, still in it's wrapper! I love the simply elegance the embossing folder adds to my otherwise CAS card.
