Love You

Hello all my bloggy and crafty friends! We are attending our niece's high school graduation in Virginia today. Congrats, Jessica! She is leaving for England soon to stay with one of her brothers there who is in the Military. She's very excited. Who wouldn't be?  

For her card, I couldn't decide if I wanted to make a cute style, a soccer card (she's a soccer girl), or something more mature. I mean, this is high school she's graduating from. She's all grown up... practically.  I decided to go with a more mature / whimsy style.

I pulled out my favorite Stampin' Up! stamp set (fav for this week) and set out to create a TALL card for her since I know we needed it a good size to hold her CASH for her graduation gift. I didn't want to fold the money to fit into an A2 size card, so the Tall card idea won.

Here's My Project Recipe
