Happy Friday! Graduation Day!

Today is an exciting day for my family, our oldest daughter is graduating from high school!  I am so proud of her being in the top 15% of her class and getting into the college of her choice.  I made her a lovely mini album which I will post about in the days to come as I still have a few tweaks, but I would like to share her graduation card.  Just so you know, my girl likes things simple and clean so her card reflects that in honor of her!  As I am the creator of this sentiment I couldn't help but add some silver paper, and gun metal grey glitter paper with glitter ribbon.  I had to sneak me into it somehow!! I hope you like the card and come back to see her book!
