Hello there! Today I'm playing along with this fabulous sketch over at The Paper Players Challenge:

Here's my take:

A friend of mine (whom I've known since kindergarten) requested a couple of custom cards recently :) One of those cards is for her son who will be graduating from high school in June. After graduation he's going on to study to be a pastry chef. I instantly thought of this Recipe For Happiness stamp set from MFT. Fun!!!

The school colors at the university he'll be attending are red, gray, and white, so I incorporated those into the design.

I hope she likes this card option...but I have another just in case ;) I'll share the second option later this week.

Thanks so much for visiting!

Have a great day!!!
