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:
