Our older son’s girlfriend graduated from high school on Saturday.  I used the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches to create our card for her.  The school’s official colors are blue and white, but the marching band and the athletic teams also have a lot of black on their uniforms, so black is considered an “unofficial” school color.  I tried to color the image to look like our graduate looked in her cap and gown, with a gold tassel and stole, and with a hint of pink to represent the pink cords she wore as a music honors student.  I also added bangs and some length to the hair on the image.  I think she was pleased when we gave her the card yesterday!
