Mojo194 -- Have a Happy Graduation

Hello! It's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch (#194).. It's also June contest week.. I hope you will join us for a chance to win some Verve stamps!

Our nephew, Ben, just graduated from high school, so this is the card that I made for him. He was only 5 when I first met him, so it's hard to believe how much time has past since then.. Congratulations, Ben! We are so proud of you!

Now on to my card.. :) I used Happy Days for my sentiment and paired this with some fun MME paper, Lime Twist Out of the Blue. I tried really hard not to make this girly.. instead of ribbon, I used some waxy flax, though I still tied a bow, curled the ends and added a Candy Dot to it. I also added some stitching around.

Here's a look at the fabulous sketch:

I hope you will play along with us this week! Please visit the Mojo Monday blog for all the details and to see the wonderful creations by the Mojo Makers! You can also visit their individual blogs for more details:
