EAD Monday Hop - Happy Graduation!

Happy Happy Monday!  It's time again for an EAD Designs Monday Hop!  This week our theme is graduation.  I put together a very simple card that leaves plenty of space to tuck away a little money for your special graduate.  (Let's be honest...that's why graduating seniors send out announcements, and really is there anything more appreciated by kids going off to college or young adults going into the "real" world than cold hard cash?  Nope.)  

If you are hopping along with us this morning, you should have arrived here from Jenn's blog - Double N Designs.  If you have hopped out of order, make sure to head back to the EAD Designs blog, so you won't miss out on a single you won't want to miss out on this week's great giveaway!
I added a little "library pocket" to the inside of the card, so the check doesn't get lost!

I used one of my favorite sticker sets from EAD Designs - Fly Away With Me

Just a little reminder...not to enable you or anything.  ;)

The next stop on today's hop is

  • Card Base 8 1/2 x 11 - scored at 4 1/4
