Dragon graduation

It's been such a glorious day today, hasn't it! And it seems like my cold is getting a bit better, although I did stay up half the night coughing. Hopefully tonight will be better. I got home from work with some daylight still leat and headed out in the garden with my red devil and took a few pictures of asparagus. Yes I know, I need a life. Only a few more days and those babies will be on my plate.

I recently acquired a bunch of new Lawn Fawn goodies, but they managed to remain untouched for at least three days which again is a clear indication that I haven't been quite a 100%. I needed some good inspiration to get going, and there it was, a great sketch from My Favourite Things. I also liked the colours over at ColourQ and all of this put together with my new Hats Off stamps resulted in this simple little graduation card. It will be graduation season sooner than you know, let me tell you! I would also like to link up over at Lawnscaping where the challenge is to add dimension. I have popped up the sentiment and the cute little graduation cap with dimensionals. Last but not least I'm also linking up at Addicted to Stamps where the theme this week is CAS.
