Graduation Thank You's

Just a quick post to share an idea I had for graduation thank you cards for my son to send out.  He graduated a couple of weeks ago from Purdue.  These are quick and easy and since Purdue's colors are Black and Gold it worked for the color challenge over at Color My Heart:  Black, White, and Gold/Flaxen.  
I started by taking a picture of his stole, cap & tassel, diploma and his pic.  I noticed there was a blank space in the bottom right hand corner.  This was a great place to use the Stamp of the Month Typed Note.  I'd like to say I planned that, but .......

I left a white border on the picture and backed it with a Flaxen diagonal. 

The inside is white with some black shimmer trim.  I told you they were quick!  


Thanks for stopping by today!  Back to work with my scrappy horses in the barn; they keep me busy this time of year!
