ME4Y Monday!

Hello and happy Monday!
Welcome to another ME4Y challenge!! Today's challenge is to use heat embossing on your card. This was a good challenge for me, as I need practice in this area. My heat embossing skills are not the best, but I did survive. This week you'll be eligible to win a $10 GC from Adams Acres. So, be sure to link up your cards at Made Especially For You to be entered! 

Now on to my card for this week's challenge

I took advantage of this challenge and made my nephew's graduation card. He graduated high school at the end of May, which I'm SO very proud of him and boy does it make me feel old! I remember sitting in the waiting room on Halloween night almost 19 years ago waiting for him arrive, and now he's already graduated. I used a Pink by Design stamp and stamped the sentiment across the Kraft cardstock to make it like a background and then I added the embossing powder and heated it up. I am really happy with how this came out. The graduation cap is from the "Graduation Day" paper piecing pattern from Scraptastical Kreations.
