Advice From A Mountain

Happy Saturday! Popping in today to share a card I made using the sketch from the most recent Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.

Here's the sketch:

And here's my take:

I absolutely LOVE this sentiment stamp from Impression Obsession! Great words to live by :)

My nephew is graduating from high school next month and will be heading off to the Naval Academy (yep...following in the footsteps of his big brother who is about to graduate from the Academy in less than two weeks). I'll be mailing this off to him very soon!

Thanks for visiting!

Hope you're having a fantastic weekend!!!

I agree, the sentiment is a good one and adding the mountains on the card is so clever. I love the colors and the great job sponging.
