Graduation #?

I thought I had completed all the graduation cards we needed for the season - but another invitation arrived.  I have my "stuff " half packed - some to take along this summer, and some to leave at home - and I don't know where anything is!  (The older I get, the harder it is to remember...)  But I just got this Blessngs die from Joan's Gardens - what a nice item!  I am sure I will use it a lot - this is the small version.  I did not embellish a lot, to keep this a masculine card - added a ribbon, and a Spellbinder swirl and border.  Black, silver and turquoise were the invitation fcolors.  I used the computer for the central verse, and Our Daily Bread scripture.

Oh, Dorothy, I just chuckled a bit when you mentioned about getting older and forgetting...I SO identify with that! This is a wonderful masculine graduation card, and I love the sentiment you added with your great new dies! And of course, the Scripture verse is a great one! This is perfect for this week's sketch, and once again, it's always a delight to see you join us for the ODBD Shining the Light challenge, sweet friend! Hugs!
