Isn't it compulsory....

to use something new when you've been to a stamping show over the weekend?  After a great buying spree, who can resist playing with their new toys?  Not me!  So for today's Mojo Monday card I unwrapped a new graduation hat embossing folder by Darice.  I love embossing folders.  I can't believe I only bought one.  But,  I was trying to be good since there are more shows coming up in April and May.  Yippee!!  My cousin wants some graduation cards to sell at her little shop, so I should get a lot of use out of this folder. 
Thinking this might be more of a guy card, I tried to keep it kind of simple and used CS only. I chose black, off white and red, because red is one of our local high school's colors and there were pieces of each in the pile on my table.   I used washi tape for the bottom borders, a Close to My Heart stamp for the sentiment, Snoopy is a Hallmark puffy sticker I picked up on clearance last year, and I followed today's Mojo Monday Sketch:

I'll be entering this card in these challenges:
