Today’s challenge is to use the colors black, olive, and cream on a card.  I instantly thought of graduation!  I dug into my paper supply and found DCWV’s High School Stack.  The background paper with the border was a thrift store find.  It’s original purpose was a one page printable invitation with envelopes.  Whoever purchased them must have abandoned the project, so it happily ended up in my stash!  I cut the background down an 1/8, and mounted it on a cream colored card that will then fit into the envelope it was intended for.  I added ribbon, a tag, a sentiment, and some bling!.
