It's that time of year when seniors in high school are starting to think about upcoming graduation and the future that lays ahead. My nephew will be leaving us in August and heading to Boulder CO for culinary school and thinking about him and his classmates approaching the end of their high school careers helped inspire this card. I've already been down this road with my older 2 kids so you'd think I wouldn't be so emotional about it but I am LOL. 

I used the SPD set 'Going Places'and used lots of bright colors to bring the card to life. Getting out on your own should be bold and fun so that's what I tried to convey with the colors and DSP. 

Need a little inspiration?  Check out what the design team has for you!
