Congrats! Caps off to you!

 Hello there!  My daughter graduated from High School a week ago.  I can't believe it!  Time is going so fast.  One of her school colors is green so I went with that.  I also used some Core'dinations cardstock by Tim Holtz called Kraft Core Nostalgic Collection.  It's been in my stash for a while.  I finally cut it into some 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inch panels so I could use it.  It's great to use with embossing folders and then sand it lightly to reveal the core color.  Too fun!  So I made it into a shaker card!
