Something simple

Hi everybody.  Hope you all have been enjoying this fabulous weather.  I have made a card today that was a special request.  A lady asked for a card for her daughter who is going to graduate in November but did not want the traditional  cap and gown type of card and requested that the card be done in black and white.  I kept the card quite simple and the lady is delighted with the result.  I have simply used a Marianne embossing folder and some Spellbinder dies.  The little butterfly which I use so very often is a punch and was one of my first crafting purchases.  Thank you for taking a look.
