Congrats Grad

I thought I'd make a card for my son.  The kids have a little ceremony at the end of fifth grade before they venture on to middle school.  It's so hard for me to keep it masculine, but I think I did okay.  (Oh, and please ignore how crooked the sentiment is.  Oops, I bet you noticed now!)

I used From the Heart's sketch # 20
